I finished only half of this book before I had to return it to the library. I didn't think it was worth the overdue fines...

The science stories were interesting but not enough for my mind to hold on to continuing. I had known about some of the stories -- the need for cadavers (and the not-so-ethical ways they were obtained) to study during the development of the medical industry. The chapter on parasites were interesting, as were the bravely idiotic stories of self-experimentation that some doctors inflicted upon themselves. But in the end, my brain wanted to move onto fiction again.
