2.0 out of 5 stars so disappointing, 17 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Across the Wide Zambezi: A Doctor's Life in Africa (Kindle Edition)
Sadly I've had to give up on this one. I've given up and come back to it quite a few times, but really either WD has read too many or possibly written too many text books, because that is exactly how it reads. As a Doctor I'm sure the medical procedures described are nothing out of the norm, but for the majority of us (and I'm not squeamish) you have to know where the boundaries are and WD doesn't. He uses words that are really quite obscure and generally I found the whole tone of the book pretty boring. I've read many, many books of this type and have always been enthralled, but this sadly failed in all areas.
