Nuland, a master storyteller, has written a wonderful book for physicians and surgeons with a love of medical history. Nuland goes back through history and examines the magic, mystery, discoveries, and primitive beliefs that forged much of modern medical science and established the still-existing associations we have with our internal organs and their imagined powers. Nuland focuses on five of those organs: the stomach, heart, liver, spleen, and uterus. And while it's not identified as an organ of discussion for the book, the human mind is also under study here.
