  • Many of the vignettes are interesting although the author can come off as preachy at times. The author manages to write in a hit or miss style regarding entertainment, some of the vignettes are intriguing others are less so. Although there is a list of sources at the end of the book no attempts were made to link stories with source material (the sources are listed alphabetically and aren't all intuitively linked with the topically organized stories). This discrepancy all but defeats the point of having sources... A few inaccuracies were observed, such as attributing HeLa cells to a Helen Baker but there were not many. Despite missing out on the opportunity of being a great read (utilization of a real endnote or footnote schema, and tweaks in story selection would offer an improvement) overall it was an ok read.

  • Well, Mr. Youngston obviously spent a lengthy amount of time researching this book. It's evident from page one, when he sheds light on a little known and often misunderstood topic; that being the medical history. In this book he clearly shows that much of what we think in terms of medical advancement is lacking.
    From the onset, and all the way through, this is an exercise in material that will make your jaw drop in surprise. The strange things the human race has done in the name of science is quite astounding in this context- or in any context for that matter.
    If you thought modern doctors were full of it, just wait until you see this! I'm actually considering calling my doctor and thanking him for not being like this- though I suppose that statement is overdoing it a bit, but I remind you- it's just a LITTLE bit.
    Entertaining, sometimes shocking, occasionally funny- this is quite a book!

  • Good
