You won't believe the half of it!,
This review is from: The Arsenic Century: How Victorian Britain was Poisoned at Home, Work, and Play (Paperback)
I'm only up to Chapter 4. This wonderful book is riveting. If you're fascinated by the history of medicine, health, crime and environmental health then this book won't disappoint. I would love to write like James Whorton, it is thoroughly researched, knowledgeable, and humorous. There are times I've laughed out loud. But if you don't like details of bodies, disease symptoms, avoid it like the plague. Best read in ages.
