This book was a really intellegently written and informative book. Wonderful issues, and sides of ancient egyptian medicine explored in great detail. I was very pleased, except I had 1 complaint. -Very little pictures Otherwise a very detailed and well written book.
As a physician and Egyptian ,I have long history of interest in ancient Egyptian medicine.Most books on the subject are either incomplete or confusing. DR Nunn`s book fills a void long felt by students of the subject.
When I got this book, I needed a manual that described the effects of embalming techniques. This book is loaded with diagrams to guide the physician along the way. Please don't miss the chapter on the holistic benefits of psycho-pyramidology.
Ein sehr kompetent geschriebenes Buch über die altägyptische Medizin. Der Autor gehört zweifellos zu den ganz wenigen Experten, die sich auf diesem schwierigen Gebiet auskennen. Abgesehen von einigen nur für Ägyptologen verständlichen Werken, ist dies das beste Buch, das zu diesem Thema derzeit auf dem Markt ist.
I found the first two chapters somewhat dull and almost didn't finish the book at all. Once into chapter three, however, I found it quite readable and very informative. Still, I suspect the volume will appeal most to those with at least some background in health care, as it's written by a retired MD.
