...This is one of my all-time favourite books. It can be summed up in three words - brilliant, brilliant and brilliant!
It is a brilliant book for everyone involved or interested in healthcare, and for whom it should be required reading. It is also brilliant for being very well written distinguished both by elegance and clarity - and for being literally packed with insightful and valid perspectives, and which appear on every single page.
It is also brilliant as a classic text on this subject, as it far outshines every other 'sociology of medicine' in the entire field. It is a very stimulating and inspiring text. Just by idly dipping into it, one's mind is left with many engaging thoughts and ideas. These linger and eventually come to comprise a fertile field of thoughts, one returns to avidly and frequently. It always enriches one's thinking.
Finally, it is brilliant for providing detailed, profound and accurate historical and sociological perspectives on every aspect of healthcare. These are also generally succinct and clearly understood.
The book is insatiably readable and very quotable. Especially for the student, endlessly searching for juicy, impressive quotes to turn a dull essay really shine - this is the book they need.
