From School Library Journal:
Grade 5-8-A basic overview of the highlights of the history of medicine beginning with the magic and witchcraft of ancient peoples, continuing through the present, and projecting some possibilities for the future. A double-page spread is devoted to chronological time periods through the 18th century, then the format switches to topics such as the scientists, medicine and war, drugs, hospital care, and pregnancy and childbirth. Specialties such as mental health, dentistry, alternative medicine, and surgery are intermingled with spreads on the 1950s and 1960s and 1970 to 1979. Coverage is uneven; some topics are well explained in the brief text, while others are a hodgepodge of information and common sense. The narrative is limited to a couple of paragraphs at most, and is no more than a recitation of facts, limited as much by its brevity as by style. Captioned drawings and labeled diagrams comprise most of the material; they provide a fairly good compendium of medical trivia and the volume will be of most use as such. The good detail and watercolor tones add to the appeal. A good choice for students interested in a broad historical survey of the subject.
