Accidental Medical Discoveries: How Tenacity and Pure Dumb Luck Changed the World
by Robert W. Winters
This is my kind of medical history book: well-written, fascinating tidbits — some of whichI wasn’t aware of and most of all, I actually remember details of this book months after I had read it.
Some of the stories are familiar to those of us who enjoy or study medical history, some of them were even a surprise me or I hadn’t read about the subject in depth.
Despite discussing some rather complex subjects, the author doesn’t get bogged down with jargon but instead makes the subjects inviting. Besides, anytime I get to learn something is always a plus in my book.
I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in medical history or has a casual interest in such.
