From the Publisher
"This delightful, clearly written little book is not so much the biography of a man as the biography of a disease: puerperal fever."
—Journal of the American Medical Association
"[T]here is much that is new and stimulating in this short biography of one of the most complex and puzzling of all the famous doctors of the nineteenth century. It is well worth reading, for Semmelweis is a much more interesting study than the cardboard saint of the standard biographies."
—Bulletin for the History of Medicine
