"An anatomy upon the historical body of London"
-Peter Ackroyd

"With teasing asides about the scandals and intrigues of London's medical history ... Black reveals little-known aspects of the capital's past in a manner both informative and fun, accessible whether you have a medical background or not. Walks you'll actually want to go on."
-Tom Lamont, Editor, Time Out: London for Londoners
