"Explorers of the Body is an exceptionally good book, both amusing and educational."
-Isaac Bashevis Singer
"Lots of good medical lore-and juicy."
"The author has accomplished a tour de force."
"An engrossing account of the medical milestones upon which 20th Century medicine is based."
"Factual accounts often stranger and more dramatic than fiction.Among the many lively anecdotes is the story of the unusual collaboration between bacteriologist-writer Paul de Kruif and Sinclair Lewis, which produced the latter's prize-winning novel Arrowsmith."
