The story is fine, but the pacing really didn’t work for me.
A good read and a lot of good current science about the many ways that the body and mind cooperate to keep everything operating well.
From the very start, this book put me off. Even the ending was disappointing, except that it signified that I was nearly done reading the thing.
It’s a thoughtful piece of work and, while it doesn’t shy from difficult situations and questions, I feel it’s an optimistic one as well.
Book Review: The Butchering Art: Joseph Lister’s Quest to Transform the Grisly World of Victorian Medicine by Dr. Lindsey Fitzharris
If you enjoy well-researched books about the history of science, don’t pass this one by. Just maybe don’t read it after eating.
