    In The Poisoner's Handbook, Blum draws from highly original research to track the fascinating, perilous days when a pair of forensic scientists began their trailblazing chemical detective work, fighting to end an era when untraceable poisons offered an easy path to the perfect crime.

    Overall

    This book is excellent. The name is unfortunate because people who should read this and would find it excellent (most people) will pass it up because of the title. if you have an interest in medicine, how the medical communities work and how poor government affect every person, you should read this book.

    In "Relativity: The Special and the General Theory", Einstein describes the theories that made him famous, illuminating his case with numerous examples and a smattering of math (nothing more complex than high-school algebra). Einstein's book is not casual reading, but for those who appreciate his work without diving into the arcana of theoretical physics, Relativity will prove a stimulating read.

    Teddy says: "Underwhelming and dissapointing"
    "Relativity of Einstein"
    Overall

    This is not a good listening book. It is not only to wordy, it gets very dry and boring if the reader doesn't have a good science background, despite the claim by the book, to be designed just for such people. Waste if money, and a excellent example of why so many people hate science.

    Praised for his erudite writing, renowned scientist Frank Gonzalez-Crussi penned this concise history of medicine, beginning with the most primitive health-care practices and ending with the technology of modern medicine that we enjoy today. As with all Modern Library Chronicles, A Short History of Medicine is a wonderful primer for anyone interested in the subject.

    Stanley says: "Dull and Disorganized"
    "Short History of Medicine"
    Overall

    This is one of, if not the of the best book, on the history medicine and medical science and practices in existence and the only one I have ever seen that actually documents, that what can and does happen to the human body, and things that can be done or work, has actually been known for centuries, but (intentionally or not) this information has been covered, dismissed or reinvented, by religions, governments, and self serving individuals, as well as the practices, of the middle east and European areas, which have, of course, been foster on the Americas and everywhere such people ruled. As Mr. Gonzalez-Crussi describes, what was known, when and what happened the astute read will understand how, and why what has happened in the past still occur today and for the same ignorant reasons. This should be required reading for anyone who has bind faith in their medical provider, government and/or religion. The one drawback is that it is not written at the usual 6th grade level so those who do not have a good vocabulary or do not know common medical terms may become lost or board do to lack of comprehension. The world would be well served for this book to be rewritten at the level of a 6th grader, the level far too many people never get passed.
