Sintesi dell'editore

Though medical science began with the ancient Greek physician Hippocrates, dissection and the study of the human body was prohibited for religious reasons until the Renaissance. Only in 1628 did William Harvey theorize that blood circulates in the body; germs weren't discovered until the 19th century. Since then, surgery and drugs have greatly reduced deaths and pain from accident and disease. Genetic research and biotechnology hold the promise of even greater advances in the 21st century.

The Science and Discovery series recreates one of history's most successful journeys: 4,000 years of scientific efforts to better understand and control the physical world. Science has often challenged and upset conventional wisdom or accepted practices; this is a story of vested interests and independent thinkers, experiments and theories, change and progress. Aristotle, Copernicus, Kepler, Galileo, Newton, Darwin, Einstein, and many others are featured.

Concisely comprehensive

Very appreciated effort, events are neatly ordered and connected, and successfully brought the stories and characters to life.
Unfortunately it omitted the contribution of the Chinese, Indians and later the Muslims.

More like a brief history of anatomical science

The first ~80% of the book is entirely a brief history of anatomy, followed by extremely brief descriptions of germ theory/antibiotics, nursing, and genetics. The genetics portion literally went from Mendel to gene editing in about 10 minutes. There are some interesting stories and the performance is very good but overall I found it disappointing as a history of “medical science”.

Interesting content

I really enjoyed the content but found the narration difficult to listen to, the pronunciation of some words really annoyed me. However I stuck withit until the end.
