FLEMING: Discoverer of Penicillin

An interestingly detailed and smoothly written life story first traces Fleming's childhood, early education and the decision to follow medical research. Though material is this on Fleming's failure to purify the drug for use, there is the sense of the selfless scientist at a dedicated task. For all those interested in medicine and particularly handy as readable material for pre-meds.
