I had been disappointed in this guide, given its fascinating subject and the excellent reviews that it received. With regard to me, the most positive thing about the guide were the stories about the writer's interactions together with his patients -- deeply human being, and often deeply moving. I wish that there had been of this -- showing how medicine is really practiced -- and more information about its putative subject, anatomy. In exchange, I could did with a good deal less of the historical material and various other wanderings. The book would also have been much increased, I think, by correct and readable anatomical blueprints. Given that so many people very much loved the book, my response may be more my problem than the writers. But those who like a book that stays to its subject may be disappointed., Just done savoring and reflecting on the book, Adventures in Human Being. I valued many dimensions of this work, most particularly the primary medical and anatomical “melody” complemented by multiple “harmonies” that encompassed human custom, linguistics, history, and archaeology, as well as viewpoint, poetry, and psychology. The organic “connectedness” of the volume makes it all the more compelling. I came away with far greater understanding for seemingly mundane entities, such as my palms and feet. In addition, Dr. Francis's deeply well intentioned yet matter-of-fact treatment of the ending of human being life was uplifting, and indeed inspiring. In many ways, this work seemed a similar chord with the writing of the late Harvard zoologist and geologist, Dr. Stephen Jay Gould, who had written about human beings—at the core—being essentially “wet biology. ”, I am not good at writing reviews and I feel this deserves someone else to write it. However let myself say that this book was such a pleasure to read! I love medicine and have read quite a few books but this one beats them all. As good written. So interesting!, We are an anatomy teacher at a US medical school and purchased this book looking for material I could use in course - anything from an entertaining anecdote to more intensive passages I could assign to a students. Somewhat than in-depth, detailed discussions of anatomy made more interesting with asides, this book is more long-winded detour and fewer focused. For example, the final chapter on feet spends a few pages on foot structure (and somewhat outdated evolutionary thinking on foot evolution) several more pages speaking about an anatomy museum. I suspect I am not the target audience for this book, and would not warn an interested person away from it, but if you are looking for more muscle and less fat, then pass this one over. Note, the guide does not have in-line references, so if you're intrigued by anything, all the best following up., 5 stars just for this beautiful, insightful book that held my interest to the very end. I have always had an interest in the medical industry and psychology - after all it is the study the human which is all of us. I liked how the author indicated his personal feelings caring for a wide range of patients. I discovered allot which i didn't realize I didn't know. I found much of the history of medicine and how it has evolved and changed (improved) through the years interesting especially how back in the 1800's it was believed that the only way to conceive was if both partners climaxed at the same time. The picture from the 1800's of the midwife assisting a patient to climax with a crank vibrator was astounding to me! Really unique, well written, attractive, (yes, even with the vibrator story) informative guide.
Also perfect editing. Such a refreshing change from some of the other kindle books I have read., Not nearly done. A really different guide. I am liking it to date. I like the way it is written. I have an interest in anatomy., My Individual Biology teacher used this book as his " textbook" for our class. This specific class had not been for technology majors, so it didn't make sense for him to be all textbook & tests about it. That made the class so much more interesting! It can a great book with some strange oddities thrown in there... you did what with WHAT??!! It's a short story style with each part of the body. I enjoyed reading this book.
Great book, great writer., I loved this guide. Read it and you will learn a different aspect about how we learn about our systems and how they work. I wish I could remember who I lent it to, because I would want to read it again.
