Douglas Starr leads you on a journey of the history of blood and how it came from being an unknown to being a life saving tool. He covers everything in an easy to follow format. You'll find yourself pulled into the book with its inspiring history.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I thought this book was wonderfully written. The author composed his work beautifully by having the history, the science, the ethical and all the other components of blood fit perfectly without one overwhelming the other. I recommend this book to anyone who loves history and a thirst for knowing the emergence of medicine, a journey that began hundreds of years ago as Starr illustrates.Was this review helpful?
