Book Description
Nobody will be able to put down this short history of medicine… without counting their blessings. Never have I read a book which made so glad not to have been before the mid 20century. Blood and Guts explores the many ingenious, curious and often gruesome ways in which humankind has fought disease over the ages: from Ayurvedic remedies to antibiotics, from blood-letting to X-rays, from crude amputations to organ transplants.With an extraordinary cast of barber surgeons, quacks, apothecaries, witch - doctors and anatomists, this is an eye-opening humorous and often terrifying look at our ongoing quet fo immortality.
