DESCRIPTION

Description: Following his hugely successful The Math Book and The Physics Book, Clifford Pickover now chronicles the advancement of medicine in 250 entertaining, illustrated landmark events. Touching on such diverse subspecialties as genetics, pharmacology, neurology, sexology, and immunology, Pickover intersperses “obvious” historical milestones-the Hippocratic Oath, general anesthesia, the Human Genome Project-with unexpected and intriguing topics like “truth serum,” the use of cocaine in eye surgery, and face transplants. 

Internationally renowned author Clifford Pickover has published more than 40 books, translated into over a dozen languages. He is an associate editor for several journals and the author of over 200 articles on various subjects. Dr. Pickover received his PhD from Yale Department of Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry. He holds over 80 US patents for inventions dealing with computing technologies and interfaces, and his website, pickover.com, has received millions of visits.
