Written by one of my dad's doctors, I found this fascinating. I need to read his 2nd book soon. #ArtfulAugust #Doctors @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Eggs

Not quite what I expected but very informative. Living in Philly makes this more interesting since we have such easy access to the Mutter Museum and can visualize the areas that are discussed. Well researched but very dry. It really talks about Dr. Mutter‘s contribution to the surgical/medical world. Fascinating stuff but definitely read like a history book.

This is the second book I‘ve read by this author and both times I‘ve been left touched.

He has gone above and beyond, risking his job and reputation to take on patients who are essentially dead or dying and bring them back from the brink.

Of course he has had patients die, the one that touched me the most was the young African child and mother, which was a terribly sad outcome and you can tell this surgeon carries these cases with him daily.

I picked this up because Edinburgh! Burke and Hare! But ultimately I was disappointed. To me, the book seeme more like a narrative jumping off point for a school discussion (history of medicine, body snatching, poverty, alcoholism) than a story in its own right. 14 year old Robbie spent most of the book in a self-destructive cycle that rarely touched much on the actual Burke & Hare crimes.

I didn't find myself eager to pick it up again.

Update. Still healing with the gaping wound on my neck. Also seeing an infectious disease doctor now and taking a new medication in hopes it helps. Time will tell on that one. But I‘m feeling a bit better and hope to get back to actually reading. And then sending these books on their way I‘m so sorry about the delay @ImperfectCJ @Jadams1776 @phantomx
