His best work,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Greatest Benefit to Mankind: A Medical History of Humanity (Paperback)The late professor Roy Porter wrote Medical History like none of his peers.
This 850 pages book was his best and in it he poured all his wisdom to tell the full history of medicine.
It can be a rather dry subject to read by Mr Porter added a nice human touch to every story making it more interesting.
It covers from ancient history to moderm times ( early XXI century ) makes emphasis on the discoveries of the XIX century.
This volume will appeal to everyone ,even those without a medical background.
