This book is similar to Bill Bryson's A Short History of Nearly Everything except it's well written, not condescending or snarky, and instead of dealing with the broader history of scientific discovery, it focuses only on the history of medicine.

Overall it is an interesting, well researched book that could be a bit livelier but accomplishes what it sets out to do.
