But as the second point on my searching after what Selye wrote about Stress, especially I was looking after what he mentioned about epilepsy, which I in many never books have seen to be noticed in in the connection to stress. But strangely to me, in this book, I didn’t find epilepsy mentioned by just a single word.
But all together, to me it was interesting to read about nearly his whole career, concerning his work, in which we are getting many explanations about the researches with animals.
But starting on the side 282 we read about Copernicus, Galileo, and Pasteur, and other discoverers, and to me Selye missing knowing about Pasteur seems strange. This after my reading the book by Ethel D. Hume: “Bechamp or Pasteur?”, with the 2 parts of it originally published in respectively 1923 and 1942. By the information in these books we learn that Pasteur actually didn’t discover anything, which Selye ought to have known.
And it’s interesting to among the Customers reviews to read Connie L’s remark, with only 1 star, about Selye’s connection to the tobacco industry, and in the 2 comments to this getting much more to known about this.
But all together, from a historical standpoint, it was an interesting book to read.

I wish Hans Selye was still alive today, I would have loved to chat with him. He's a very interesting character.
