Audible Editor Reviews

Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing, presents her studies and guidelines on effective care for the sick. This is as much geared to the common person - specifically women, who she says all must care for someone else at some point in their life - as it is to healthcare professionals. Preventative actions like hygiene, comfort, fresh air, and diet that may now seem commonsense are looked at systematically as methods of aiding the reparative process. Elisabeth Rodgers' delicate British voice takes on a firm educational tone fitting the instructive material and the eminent woman’s undertaking. This is a well-thought, useful guide that rings true today for any person who cares about aiding the suffering of others.
