Great .. fast read and informative facts about many of histories medical discoveries. Did you know that Yellow Fever in the Caribbean did not make the black slaves sick and was a major cause of the uprising in Haiti.

This would have been a lot better if the text had been footnoted. There were some things that I would be interested in further investigating after reading this book. However, the text I read did include a list of resources but there was no way to connect various quotes and anecdotes to their sources.

This book was merely fine. It reads like a YA adaptation of a longer book. Nothing new here. (Turns out it is YA nonfiction; wish I could easily discern that when reading books on my phone!)
