Excellent blend of history and medicine

by bookluvr on Nov 18, 2010

Dr. George Washington Crile lived a fascinating and extraordinary life. This two-volume set is a must have as it recounts not only his life in medicine and war, but also displays the splendid narrative of Dr. Crile's founding of the Cleveland Clinic. As a Cleveland native, I have often driven past the enormous span of the Clinic on Euclid Avenue. The original building, founded by Dr. Crile is still there, fronting Euclid Avenue. It was the scene of the horrendous Cleveland Clinic explosion and fire in the late 20's. This explosion is dealt with tersely by Dr. Crile, almost unemotionally, but one senses his profound emotional pain in the loss of patients,as well as his colleague, Dr. John Phillips. Both volumes of this extraordinary autobiography are completely absorbing. A fascinating read of a fascinating life as well as the genesis of a healthcare superpower, The Cleveland Clinic.
