Editorial Review

"Fascinating. The wit and humour of the prose and the insight of the argument compelled me to read on. The specialist will benefit from the concise discussions of diverse topics and the general reader will find many gold nuggets of entertainment and information. Malleson is excellent in his discussion of the numerous side-issues." Arthur Schafer, Department of Philosophy, University of Manitoba ----- "An important and engaging book." Nortin M. Hadler, MD FACP FACR FACOEM, Professor of Medicine and Microbiology/Immunology, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
