Review: Medicine: An Illustrated History

User Review  - Lenny Husen - Goodreads

This book is worth having for the photos--there are many, some of better quality than others, and the photos and the book are large. The history isn't well-written or presented, but not bad. This is for the Medical History Buff's Coffee Table. It is fun to browse through. Read full review
