George Rousseau, TLS Elegantly constructed book...


The Scotsman The stories they tell are often fascinating and alarming - pitched somewhere between farce, genius, horror and a lab report.


The Scotsman These four 'biographies' of diseases go far beyond questions of biology or medical practice; they talk politics, sex and class, faith.


Wendy Moore, British Medical Journal The notion of an ailment having a birth, a lifespan, and - ideally - a demise...is an illuminating and useful concept.


Wendy Moore, British Medical Journal Andrew Scull's exploration...provides an utterly enthralling study of medical ideology and sociology.
