A fascinating scrapbook of observations the author has collected over the years on the subject of the body. He explores the meanderings of the history of medicine, & strikes with definitive aphorisms, cuts out images of distant & near civilizations, & glosses the squander & deceptions of physiology. An adventurous book that is both encyclopedic & personal. Open it to any page & you will find a sentence, a detail, a story that will make you reflect & fantasize.A compendium of aphoristic opinions erudite, outrageous, & cranky through which Ceronetti seeks to lift the veil from human things in a way that doctors of medicine never will.
