Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Park is a neurosurgeon with some training in history. Here he combines his professional training and avocation to analyze the impact of severe illness on world leaders, taking as case studies individuals like Hitler, Hindenburg, Wilson, and Franklin Roosevelt. Park does a very creditable job of demonstrating that famous men have made very important decisions while mentally impaired, and the posthumous medical diagnoses are fascinating. Unfortunately, the prose sometimes labors under an excess of medical jargon that detracts from the topic. Still, academic and larger public libraries will want this. It is a soundly researched, well-crafted example of the still fledgling field of biohistory by a writer who obviously understands the pitfalls of the discipline. Ann Sullivan, Tomkins Cortland Community Coll. Lib., Dryden, N.Y.
