This is a very straight forward biography. Olmsted explains Bernard's theories, describes his experiments and gives a full and rich description of his private life. I found the description of Bernard's early experiments especially interesting. His long friendship with Mme. Hermann Raffalovich was quite intriguing. I came away with a better sense of both 19th century science and mores. I think I'll read Olmsted's book on Bernard's teacher Magendie next.
