Editorial Reviews

Wouter Stomp, M.D.
...greatly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in reading a great overview of the history of medical devices. The book kept me and held my interest until the last page. It is amazing to see how many technologies that we take for granted were developed only in the last few decades. It does an impressive job covering such a broad subject in just 332 pages, so much so that I couldn't discover any great omissions.
