Editorial Reviews

?Dr. Hudson has written a lively, informative, and thought-provoking book.... Hudson traces the doctor's and patient's relationships to disease down through the centuries. He shows how we have obtained our information about diseases from ancient times to the present and describes the accompanying changes in viewpoints.... The author carefully distinguishes between disease ... and illness ... and demonstrates how failure to be aware of this separation has made problems for physicians and patients. Throughout the volume Hudson stresses the need for humility among physicians and medical scientists in their certainty about cause and effect.... Hudson's book will appeal to physicians, medical students, and that element in the general public that likes to think about what has been--and is--going on in medicine.?-Journal of the American Medical Association
