This is essentially a primer for lay persons. Pictures and brief discussions may be found on Hippocrates, Galen, Arabian physicians, Vesalius, Paré, William Harvey, Edward Jenner, Elizabeth Blackwell, Rudolf Virchow, Louis Pasteur, Joseph Lister, William Osler, Walter Reed, Sigmund Freud, Harvey Cushing, Alice Hamilton and Hans Zinsser. A brief chapter entitled The New Frontiers offers a brief glimpse into the work of more recent men, such as Paul Ehrlich and Sir Alexander Fleming. The reproductions and printing are commendable. There is a fairly complete index.
