Maybe the best book of this type I have yet read. Very interesting read that integrates various branches of science with experiences we may have personally had. Elicits new thoughts about previous happenings we may have experienced, or thought about.
While an easy and largely non-technical read, this book provides and interesting and valuable glimpse into things that happen at the outer environmental fringes, and how the body responds. While medical in nature, this book is entirely readable, and should be interesting to medical and non-medically trained people alike. Well done.
A delightfully well written and vivid summary of medical advances associated with exposure to hostile environments, surprising that so much was learned on battlefields, and that human space travel is fraught with serious medical challenges.
Interesting, easy read. As a medical professional I found it somewhat simplistic, but still an informative history of the medical practice we take for granted today. Certainly not too graphic fir the faint of heart!!
