Kill or CureNd medical breakthroughs while telling the dramatic tale of medical progress Diaries notebooks and other first person accounts tell the fascinating stories from the perspective of people who witnessed medical history firsthand I wish pop sci books were picture books This topic is in my wheelhouse so I feel confident saying that the explanations are generally accurate in their simplifications for a lay audience I enjoyed the serendipitous uirks and historical context highlighted in each chapter; it elevated the work from a dumbed down textbook to recreational reading My main criticism is the western centric perspective on how the history of medicine is told I don't mean that I'm criticising how much of the book focussed on western medicine but rather than any time any non European derived medicine is discussed it is done so with a sheen of condescension or derision that I found exhausting to plough through on the way to the next Euro centric discovery
