Medical Mavericks Vol. 1
This book could just as accurately have been titled “One person can make a difference” or “Burn him at the stake and use damp straw.”
Often reviled by their contemporaries but revered by subsequent generations, these medical mavericks blazed the trail of scientific progress. These tales of discovery, personal hardship, court intrigues, and hardball professional rivalry make for fascinating reading.
This is the perfect book for medical professionals, history buffs, and anyone who just wants to be entertained with incredible anecdotes about pioneers in the field of medicine.
Medical Mavericks will raise the eyebrows of most, make others chuckle, and bring a sense of relief to contemporary mavericks, who can take comfort in the thought that at least they aren’t being burned at the stake.
