Review quote

"Circulation of the Blood is an excellent book written with the insight and with the knowledge that only great minds can bring to bear on a subject....Anyone who reads these essays will realize that it is the physiologists with their breadth of vision and encompassing minds, who provide a discipline that will invariably lead the way for the rest of us."--Medical Post"I found almost all of the chapters very readable and entertaining, as well as providing valuable insight into how scientific ideas are born....This book should be of great interest to medical historians, as well as to investigators interested in how the great concepts of circulatory physiology were developed. The editors, as well as The American Physiological Society, have done a great service in reprinting this book."--Chest"This book's uniqueness is that it was written largely by men whose primary interest was clinical medicine yet who were recognized by physiologists as leaders in physiology."--New England Journal of Medicine "Circulation of the Blood is an excellent book written with the insight and with the knowledge that only great minds can bring to bear on a subject....Anyone who reads these essays will realize that it is the physiologists with their breadth of vision and encompassing minds, who provide a discipline that will invariably lead the way for the rest of us."--Medical Post "I found almost all of the chapters very readable and entertaining, as well as providing valuable insight into how scientific ideas are born....This book should be of great interest to medical historians, as well as to investigators interested in how the great concepts of circulatory physiology were developed.
