    1 thought on “Men Against Death”

    1. It's both hilarious yet daunting to read historical accounts of early breakthroughs in medical science. That sunlight was once standard treatment for tuberculosis and malaria for syphilis should give the reader pause for what people will say about early 21st century physicians. De Kruif is an excellent writer and I found his enthusiasm and personal contemplations intriguing. Interesting stuff here as well on the early days of rickettsial disease.

    2. Keeping in mind that this was written 80 years ago, it still was of much interest in that even though I knew of all the medical advances written in it, it informed me of how the advances came about.If I had read this 30 years ago when I acquired the book, I would have been able to diagnose my pernicias anemia myself ten years before the doctors were able to.

    3. Though copyrighted in 1922 the content was fascinatingly written and introduced in such a way as to catch and keep one's attention. The writer has a unique style and manages to make stories of great discoveries in medicine stand alone. I liked that though the facts would enrich any textbook, yet the interesting style saved them from becoming tedious.I learned a lot.

    4. A 1937 book about some of the heroes of science and medicine. There are more recent books, but this was one that gripped me as a young person.
