Prof: The Life of Sheila Sherlock, "the Liver Queen"

Front Cover
Royal College of Physicians, Jan 1, 2007 - College teachers - 216 pages
Sheila Sherlock was an extraordinary woman, not only for her professional achievements, but also because they were gained against the odds, solely by her own talents and endeavour. In this biography, Om Sharma weaves her personal story into its historical context, picking out detail from both to enhance and enliven the other. Illustrating his material with photos throughout, the author begins with her ill-matched parents, an unhappy union from which her father fled and remained largely absent.. From a single-parent family, then, Sheila emerged a precocious child, who by sheer diligence and discipline became one of the most dazzling medical personalities of the latter half of the twentieth century.
