    Some interesting chapters but a lot of wandering off the subject

    This was a wonderful book about all the great medical pioneers some of which are familiar to us like Lister and some are known only to medical historians Shep is one of the best medical writers of our time and each and every book is thoughtful and well written This book is extremely lengthy but don't let that be an obstacle The book begins with Hippocrates and Galen then heads into the Renaissance and Vesalius followed by Pare Harvey Morgagni Hunter Laennecand my favorite Ignac Semmelweis known for the germ theory and handwashing BTW Shep wrote a great book about Semmelweis too and I encourage you to read that and see my review From there we make our way to anesthesia cells Lister Halsted and Taussig the only lady of the bunch The book ends with transplantation and since almost a uarter of a century has passed since this book was published new medical pioneers have certainly been born The journey to scientific medicine has taken thousands of years and we still look at medicine as a mix of art and science We know so much but there is still so much to discover

    Although it was well written and the illustrations were brilliant the book did not turn out as I hoped There were many inaccuracies some mistakes and huge gaps But what got me most was the bias Although the Author did mention at the beginning that he included only what he considered his heros it was unfortunate that all his heros were western white Doctors The Author even went a step further by insinuating that all medical advancement created by western white Doctors For example there was than a thousand year gap between the second chapter and the third and he named the third chapter the Awakening undermining the work and medical advancements done in the time between the two chapters although the Auther did admit that the knowledge passed through a third party withthin that period But they were not western white Doctors and no chapter was dedicated to any doctor from that period In the end I suggest strongly to change the title to the illustrated history of WESTERN medical pioneers For less bias work I recommend Robert E Adler
