Throughout history, medical science has been at the helm of human development, from Neanderthals stitching their wounds with bone needles to modern organ transplantation.

Robert Snedden explores this fascinating subject, marking not a straightforward trajectory from primitive guesswork to sophisticated science but rather a winding narrative of twists and turns. Discover how 7th-century Buddhist monks used vaccination techniques 1300 years before their accepted discovery, or how traces of antibiotics were detected in Roman skeletons.

Other topics include:

• Hippocrates and the four humors

• Public health and sanitation

• Progress made into the science of mental health

• Medical genetics, including DNA, blood types and genetic engineering

Full of useful timelines, fact boxes and eye-catching images, this full-color hardback provides an engaging introduction to this far-reaching subject. It presents some of the pioneers of medical discovery, including household names such as Leonardo di Vinci and Edward Jenner as well as lesser-known figures such as Benjamin Jetsey and William Harvey. Discover the astounding breakthroughs of medical history which changed the world.

    "Har precis startat en provperiod hos Storytel och det är det bästa jag någonsin gjort. Att lyssna ger mig full koncentration på boken samtidigt som jag kan pyssla med annat."

    Birgitta Johansson

    "Det bästa som har hänt mig på länge. Dessutom lyssnar jag på böcker som jag nog aldrig hade kommit mig för att läsa annars. Jag lyssnar i bilen, på promenaden eller när jag städar."

    "Jag och min man delar familjeabonnemanget och har haft Storytel i 5-6 år. Vi är så nöjda med både appen och Readern. Här finns ett stort bokutbud som passar oss båda!"
