Following his hugely successful The Math Book and The Physics Book, Clifford Pickover now chronicles the advancement of medicine in 250 entertaining, illustrated landmark events. Touching on such diverse subspecialties as genetics, pharmacology, neurology, sexology, and immunology, Pickover intersperses “obvious” historical milestones-the Hippocratic Oath, general anesthesia, the Human Genome Project-with unexpected and intriguing topics like “truth serum,” the use of cocaine in eye surgery, and face transplants.
