How did modern medicine come about?
A relaxed and informative read, THE HISTORY OF MEDICINE is an amiable amble through medicine's past. The approach is to follow medicine's history through the author's neatly designed 'Ages' - each of which offers a meaningful way to grasp and memorise key eras and events. Twenty one 'Ages' take us from pre-history to a glimpse of the future.
This book is not a description of all that ever happened in medicine's history. It is a collection of true stories of the more pivotal and fascinating bits. Through stories of inspiring and often odd people, and inspired and often distinctly unexpected objects, it allows us to take an absorbing journey through medicine's somewhat quirky history.
