Sinopsis:

This exploration of healing moves from ancient techniques and primitive treatments to the frontiers of medical technology, including miracle pharmaceuticals, unique health regimes, incredible recoveries, unusual birthing practices and the secrets of remarkable centenarians. Combining essays from some of America's foremost writers this book looks at some of the most important topics in the world of medicine.

Críticas:

An extraordinary look at the emotions, the mystery, the faces, and the remarkable diversity of health, healing, and medicine around the world. Breathtaking original photographs and illuminating essays combine to present a unique and hopeful portrait of humanity's age-old fascination with the body and how to keep it healthy. Journey through the pages of this book and discover: Tibetan healers using miraculous "precious pills" made of diamonds and rubies; Red Cross medical personnel scrambling through the crossfire in El Salvador; healers in central Africa using soldier ants in place of stitches; an emergency-room team in Baltimore making split-second life-and-death decisions; and American doctors and researchers creating biological and pharmacological miracles.
