It's divided into chapters on different discoveries, detailing how the discovery has enhanced emergency medicine and a history of the procedures and medications now used. I was surprised at how many of the procedures were used hundreds of years ago!
Each chapter is pretty much stand-alone, although there are multiple parts in some cases.
The author is writing for a general audience and the book isn't super technical. Where some technicality is necessary, he defines those things well.
Also, some of the footnotes were of an ungodly length and probably should have had their own chapters.
Overall, though, some of the stories were interesting. I wish it had been written less like a textbook, but that's harder to do when dealing with stories from history, especially for someone with a more scientific background. Some cool stories, but somewhat bad execution.
really great, but after using it for several weeks, my nails are no less prone to break or split than
before I used it. also cuticles are still peeling. I will give it a few more weeks before I finally
decide if it is worthwhile.
