From the reviews:“A strikingly complete yet highly readable history of biomedical sciences, from BCE to the present, would be invaluable to scientists of all ages. In this well-written work translated from the original French version, accomplished biochemists Pierre Vignais … and Paulette Vignais (emer., CNRS, France) went one step further and painted a seamless picture of the evolution of the scientific method on a superb historical backdrop. … Summing Up: Highly recommended. Students of all levels, researchers/faculty, and professionals.” (B. D. Spiegelberg, Choice, Vol. 48 (5), January, 2011)
