DOCTORS Heroes and Villains

My latest chef-d’oeuvre DOCTORS Heroes and Villains is available on; and as an ebook and paperback. It’s a quirky and amusing history of western medicine told through the stories of about 150 doctors, mostly good but some evil; a few stories familiar, much material new (what happened to Napoleon’s heart … and his penis, post-mortem? What did the discoverer of a successful and safe vaccine against smallpox have to say about cuckoos?). My intention is to entertain but at the same time illustrate the profound changes in western medicine once scientific method demonstrated that our health was not dependent on supernatural causes or divine punishment for human transgressions.
