Disease of the King (Paperback)

Customer Review

Louis XIV had several disease but the main mentioned in this book is the anal fistula. Unglamorous topic when you consider the Sun King.

I liked the description of the approach that had Felix (the time of surgeon), with its various instruments tests. It is thanks to these men that have advanced medicine. And detail that was not hidden: testing in prisons and hospices.
I regret cons of not having had a concordant illustration, because at the end I am not sure that the illustration of the clip onto the front cover is the one that was used at the time.

Being in the paramedical, I stayed on the end. I would have liked more details in the aftermath of this major intervention.

If the intention of the author was an invitation for research, it's been the case for me and Hits.
I could even see the book study in colleges / high schools. Some will see words may be raw, but the current language of young people makes us turn pale see more!
In addition, there is a parallel with the story that was reported. I am sometimes asked why "as" retail politics when he was supposed to talk about THE king's illness, but at the time, the two were very closely related ... The church square was a large importance unlike that of the medical / surgical rather seen as evil.
Personally it made me want to take a turn to the history of medicine museum.

As you see, I am torn on this book.
