Product Details

Praise

“The authors shrewdly look backward at the history of medical innovation over the past century. . . Their prescription for society is wise” —The New York Times

“Is being short a medical problem that warrants treatment? What about the diminished strength that accompanies lower testosterone levels in men as they age? . . . These are among the provocative questions that . . . a pair of eminent medical historians from Columbia University thoughtfully explore in their new book.” —The Washington Post

“A thoroughly documented and readable book. ‘What science creates medicine rapidly dispenses,’ [the Rothmans] warn, and this uncritical acceptance by both physician and consumer is precisely the problem.” –Sherwin Nuland, The New York Review of Books

“An important contribution to the debate about medical enhancement” —The New England Journal of Medicine
