This is a clearly written factual account of a great pioneer in the medical sciences of France a hundred years ago. The first part of the last century was a great period for medical science in that country, with such leaders as Lavoisier, Magendie and Magendie's pupil Claude Bernard. It is worth while for members of our profession to secure inspiration, guidance and courage from the great medical leaders of the past, men who frequently labored under great difficulties and yet carried the torch forward. Professor Olmsted has rendered medicine a distinct service in presenting this clear story of François Magendie.
