From the reviews:
"…The illustrations are so beautifuldepicting nursing through classical art and sculpture and in the earliest black and white photosthat this history of the profession could easily grace any personal or public library. As I turned the pages of this book, with its high quality paper that shows the illustrations to their greatest advantage, I thought what a great holiday gift this would make for any nurse or any want-to-be nurse. ... Strengthening the value of the book is the historical textpresented in short easy-to- absorb chaptersby a British nurse academic, from Manchester, UK, and a professor emerita from the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia. ...I recommend this book as a solid history and a beautiful testament to those nurses who have paved the way for today's caregivers..."
