KIRKUS REVIEW

In a continuation of the earlier The Century of the Surgeon, the fictional Dr. Hartman takes up his account of significant moments in medicine from the point when anesthesia and antisepsis allowed for great progress in surgery. Detailed accounts of cerebral and spinal, lung, throat, gallbladder and other complex surgery are given. Anecdotes of celebrated men give luster to this highly readable and informative book. Illustrated with photographs and line drawings, this book is essential to anyone contemplating a medical career and will also be read with interest by those with merely a general interest in the progress of surgery.
