“This book provides a fascinating overview of the history of modern medicine. With figures ranging in time from the beginnings of medicine with Hippocrates, to the cutting edge of modern discoveries, it’s an essential addition to the general interest literature on medical history.”
Dr. Rosalyn S. Yalow, Nobel Laureate

“At a time when bedrock scientific principles like evolution are being challenged anew, it’s refreshing and important to read a book which takes as its goal the celebration of science. Medical Marvels is an immensely engrossing survey which makes clear how dramatically scientific understanding has improved our lives. It’s also a textbook example of how to write short, entertaining, and informative capsule biographies. For this alone, it should be required reading in all writing programs.”
Peter Rothberg, Associate Publisher, The Nation
