Reviews
"Berton Roueché's 'Annals of Medicine' pieces enriched us for well over a quarter of a century. They have become classics in a genre he himself created single-handedly."--The American Academy and Institute of Arts & Letters

"Roueché's writings have become unofficial textbooks for medical students, interns, practitioners, scientists, and for that matter anyone interested in human illness. They are engrossing, instructive, accurate, and marvelous fun to read, and the present collection represents Roueché at his best."--Lewis Thomas, MD, author of The Lives of a Cell and The Medusa and the Snail
