'History of Medicine is a tour de force, a very personal, enthusiastic, frank approach by a teacher, clinician, and historian who has excelled at all three, and brings that excellence and excitement to the students through these pages.' - T.J. Murray, Dalhousie University, Canada
'Duffin's book, as a single-authored work, is far more coherent than Cambridge Illustrated History of Medicine. As compared to Greatest Benefit to Mankind, Duffin's book is a much more attractive work in view of the illustrations spread through the book and the text boxes - and I am sure that medical and other students will find it more accessible.' - David Smith, University of Aberdeen
JACALYN DUFFIN is Jason A. Hannah Professor of the History of Medicine at Queen's University in Canada.
