***Excellent Introduction to History of Medicine--Inspired Interest to Learn More!***

A friend who is very interested in the subject matter of the material of *Kill or Cure: An Illustrated History of Medicine* perhaps summed it up best when he described this book, upon a lengthy perusal, as kind of a coffee table book, which just makes other, actual coffee table books look bad. This is a smart and thorough layman's survey of the history of medicine. I really enjoyed reading this book! It made me interested to seek out more in-depth historical sources on several subjects covered.

One thing I especially appreciated about author Steve Parker's approach to his introduction to medicine's history was his notable attention to several underacknowledged groups' contributions to medicine. I speak specifically of non-Western cultures and women in medicine.

In sum, I highly recommend this book. Thank you for reading my thoughts--I hope they are helpful.

Note: I received an Advance Reader's Copy of this book through a GoodReads Giveaway.
