From the reviews: "...The illustrations are so beautiful--depicting nursing through classical art and sculpture and in the earliest black and white photos--that this history of the profession could easily grace any personal or public library. As I turned the pages of this book, with its high quality paper that shows the illustrations to their greatest advantage, I thought what a great holiday gift this would make for any nurse or any want-to-be nurse. ... Strengthening the value of the book is the historical text--presented in short easy-to- absorb chapters--by a British nurse academic, from Manchester, UK, and a professor emerita from the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia. ...I recommend this book as a solid history and a beautiful testament to those nurses who have paved the way for today's caregivers..." --Gail O. Guterl, ADVANCE
