Reviews:
  • Gunos
I got to about page 70 in this book before giving up. It was quite informative, just not informative on Henry Gray or Henry Carter. I felt like I was learning more about the author rather than the men behind Gray's Anatomy. Would I tell someone to read this? No. Would I purchase it again? No.
  • Golden freddi
I was initially put off by the author's needing to tell about himself. Reporting in the first person is one thing, taking about your boyfriend seemed gratuitous and self-conscious. His experiences in the dissection labs, though told in first-person added to the insights he had about history he was trying to tell. Only when I got to the end and realized why the boyfriend was talked about did it make sense Still it seemed he was working hard to celebrate him and that detracted from the read.
  • Darkraven
This is such a fun & fascinating read! The author weaves his research into the lives of Henry Gray and HV Carter with his personal experiences in gross anatomy courses, which he begins as an observer, but evolves into a learned resource for the students. It's a mix of empirical research, anatomical discussion, and personal commentary.
  • Gold as Heart
I enjoyed most of this very interesting book. I loved how the author weaved his current classes with the past. I just wish he didn't find it necessary to tell personal information.
  • Akta
Great read. Will buy author’s other books.
  • Khiceog
Medical history has a lot of quirks. But when you find a book that actually breaks new ground and is a groundbreaking idea, well, you've got something then! Consolidation of information can change everything.
  • Orevise

Got this for my friend in medical school and she was very excited about it.
