A Great Adventure in Invention and Medical Science,

This review is from: Shattered Nerves: How Science Is Solving Modern Medicine's Most Perplexing Problem (Hardcover)
Victor Chase's history and up-to-date story of prosthetic implants is riveting. I found it to be a wonderful read for its selective history of prosthetic implants, cutting-edge science, and for the in-depth human side that he presents. The author's care and concern for the patients he interviewed comes across as much as his intimate understanding of the science he helps his readers to understand and appreciate.
I'm saving my copy as a reference for when parts of me decide to head south...without passports.
