I have known and worked with Bob Greenspan for 15 years and never cease to be amazed by the limitless energy he devotes to everything he does, this book being a notable example. Bob has been collecting medical antiques for over 35 years and has turned his passion for the history of medicine into this amazing work which chronicles the advances in medicine through the eyes of patients, doctors and others, adding the human factor to the art and science of medicine. Get a cup of coffee, take off your shoes, and settle into your most comfortable chair for a thoroughly captivating voyage through the history of medicine, replete with anecdotes, incredible images, and historical vignettes that provide a unique insight into the thinking (often flawed) behind the developments leading to modern medicine. I have given this book to colleagues at the times of special milestones in their medical career. My own copy is inscribed by the author and is one of the most prized books in my own library. If you purchase this book as a gift, be certain to get one for yourself.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
