History of Medicine: All That Matters identifies sixteen different ages of medicine, each with its own challenges, solutions, developments and remarkable stories. As well as making for a pacy and readable narrative, this innovative approach enables the reader to understand the context of medical developments without losing sight of their sheer excitement, importance and (at times) serendipity.

Dr Tim Hall is both an award-winning writer and a practical medic, and he brings to the history of medicine both the writer’s ability to find and tell a story, and the medic’s ability to understand and explain the science. The result is the best short history of medicine written for many years.

This accessible and informative book will appeal both to students and general readers, giving a fascinating introduction to the history of medicine – and what matters most about it.
