5.0 out of 5 stars Evolution and healing..., 9 May 2012
This review is from: Why We Get Sick (Paperback)
"Buy two copies and give one to your Doctor." Richard Dawkins...

There's not really much more I can say if Richard Dawkins wants to give a copy to our Doctors.

This is a very interesting book and may help us understand why we get sick and lists 6 different issues:
1. Defences
2. Infection
3. Novel environments
4. Genes
5. Design compromises
6. Evolutionary legacies

If this interests you then I suggest read some of the other more in depth reviews or even buy the book...

What I enjoyed about this book is the common sense approach - even when being very scientific the authors have a lovely way of telling a story.

"A caveat is necessary. Doctors and patients, like all other people, are prone to extend theories too far..."

It has great chapters on lots of different subjects and reads like a story like I mentioned earlier and this for me is why the book is so good - its readable unlike for example many research papers on the same subject...

Like all the books I recommend, don't take it too seriously, learn from it and move on. It is one perspective on a multi- faceted terminal condition we call human life...
