Description


For gruesomely curious or medically minded kids, a look at the fascinating and often macabre practices employed during humanity's constant battle against illness.

"Diving into all the ways that medicine has been used to do harm throughout the centuries, Do No Harm is a delightful history of medicine for young readers, full of entertaining writing and educational illustrations."--ForeWord Reviews

Take a romp through the fascinating history of medicine and discover the clever, curious, and often gruesome ways in which humankind has fought injury and disease through the ages--from the early understanding of anatomy to X-rays, from dreadful dentistry to dazzling dentures, and from appalling amputations to super-skilled surgeries.

Discover the pills and potions that often did more harm than good, the bizarre treatments and torturous surgeries. As well as finding strange and little-known stories, readers will also develop a deeper understanding of the pioneers and pivotal discoveries that paved the way for the modern medicine we often take for granted today.

Delightfully Gothic illustration brings the information to life, complemented by photographs of key artefacts.
