Product description

Review

'Nobody will be able to put down this short history of medicine... without counting their blessings. Never have I read a book which made me so glad not to have been born before the mid-20th century.' Daily Mail

Synopsis

Mankind's battle to stay alive is an enduring subject. Written by one of Britain's most respected medical historians, this title compresses into a tiny span a lifetime spent thinking about a millennia of human ingenuity in the quest to cheat death.
