Reviews
Smart and addictive.--Deborah Blum, author of The Poisoner's Handbook
Tucker's sleuthing adds drama to an utterly compelling picture of Europe at the moment when modern science was being shaped.
Ingenious, engaging, and disquieting...Tucker masterfully narrates a rich tale about the competing passions of faith, politics, and knowledge.
Multilayered and engrossing...a riveting story.
Blood Work is fascinating and richly-researched, giving us a gory glimpse of the dawn of our scientific age.--Carl Zimmer, author of She Has Her Mother's Laugh
Blood Work is a magnificent story of the heady days when transfusions were first being performed. There is drama, intrigue, discovery and revelation in this tale and the writing is terrific.--Abraham Verghese, author of Cutting for Stone
