Description

A lively, accessible, and fully illustrated guide to the history of medicine, from ancient practices to cutting edge innovations.

Clifford Pickover continues his popular series that includes The Physics Book and The Math Book with this volume chronicling the advancement of medicine in 250 entertaining, illustrated landmark events. Touching on such diverse subspecialties as genetics, pharmacology, neurology, sexology, and immunology, Pickover intersperses "obvious" historical milestones -- the Hippocratic Oath, general anesthesia, the Human Genome Project -- with unexpected and intriguing topics like "truth serum," the use of cocaine in eye surgery, and face transplants.
