very informative and well researched
This book gives a very good overview of the development of medicine during the transition from the middle ages to renaissance. Since it follows one person, it gives lots of colorful details that are easy to follow. I found parallels between renaissance medical establishment and today's medical practice very interesting.

Where was the Alchemy???
This book had more dramatic words that any actual facts!!!
I don't even know what the author actually feels about the main character and I didn't learn anything about alchemy or medicine!
