Read this for an exhibit I'm curating at work. I have absolutely LOVED learning about Nightingale. This book has fabulous illustrations, and has been a good introduction to Nightingale's life and work. I was caught by this biography for about the first half, and then it lost me when it got into Florence's politicking and reform after the Crimean War. Probably the first of several Nightingale biographies.

This is laid out like a textbook. If you are looking for a college text for a course on the origins of Nursing or about Florence Nightengale, this is a great pick. If you are looking for a flowing biography, pick a different book.

Very interesting,and scholarly, but exhaustive (and exhausting) in it's details. Lots of great illustrations. a browsing book rather than a book I can read straight through.
Barbara Dossey is a premier holistic nurse.
