5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent - a must read, 17 April 2013
This review is from: Extremes: Life, Death and the Limits of the Human Body (Hardcover)
We're quite privileged at the moment to have a whole heap of excellent popular science books for our reading pleasure. Extremes by Kevin Fong is easily one of the best I've read recently. He has a wonderfully relaxed way of writing that makes you feel as if an old friend is regaling you with interesting stories, and it keeps you hooked throughout the entire book. It's particularly nice to get insight into the kinds of things that medical doctors have to go through as part of their training, and I think Fong's personal experiences add a hugely rich dimension to the book. Also, if you ever get the chance to watch him give a talk, do so - he's one of the most engaging and witty speakers I've seen in a long time. In short, this is a fantastic book that you'll find an utter joy to read. Well worth getting.
