Good. Connecting readers with great books since 1972. Used books may not include companion materials, some shelf wear, may contain highlighting/notes, and may not include cd-rom or access codes. Customer service is our top priority!
Fair. This item is listed as acceptable and has probably been well used. It could have considerable writing or highlighting throughout but is still usable and has been priced accordingly. Please do not buy if you are expecting a perfect copy. It has a couple more reads left before its time to be recycled. We ship within 1 business day and offer no hassle returns. Big Hearted Books shares its profits with schools, churches and non-profit groups throughout New England. Thank you for your support!
Publishers Weekly, 2011-03-28 For these short profiles of people pictured on postage stamps, the authors devised a unique if limiting premise for inclusion: "men and women with relatively little known links to medicine who were honored on stamps primarily because they made their mark in other fields-politics, art, philosophy, religion, entertainment, sports, and so on." The 131 individuals profiled include Walt Disney and Ernest Hemingway, who were both American Red Cross ambulance drivers during WWI; Hector Berlioz and Robinson Jeffers, who were once medical students; basketball inventor James Naismith, who was briefly a Colorado physician; O. Henry, who was a licensed pharmacist while a prison inmate; and Howard Hughes, who founded the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. The book disappoints on multiple levels. Some of the stamps profiled belong to larger sets, leaving readers to wish the authors had presented the entire set. Additionally, there is scant information about the stamps themselves-usually a single sentence at the end of each profile-and the artists of the stamps remain a mystery. (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
