The Butchering Art: Joseph Lister’s Quest to Transform the Grisly World of Victorian Medicine by Lindsey Fitzharris

A PW Fall 2017 Top 10 Science Book

“British science writer Fitzharris slices into medical history with this excellent biography of Joseph Lister… She infuses her thoughtful and finely crafted examination of this revolution with the same sense of wonder and compassion Lister himself brought to his patients, colleagues, and students. “As he neared the end of his life, Lister expressed the desire that if his story was ever told, it would be done through his scientific achievements alone,” Fitzharris notes, respecting his wish and fulfilling it in the context of a remarkable life and time.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Medical historian and popular blogger Fitzharris narrates the quest of a tenacious 19th-century doctor to save his patients; in the process, he transformed the world of surgery and medicine. . . Fitzharris knows how to engage readers in fascinating and shocking details about medical history. She clearly. . . explains medical and scientific terms and techniques while also using novelistic details and narrative techniques to move the story along. In deftly capturing an ‘epochal moment when medicine and science merged,’ the author also offers an important reminder that, while many regard science as the key to progress, it can only help in so far as people are willing to open their minds to embrace change.”–Kirkus Reviews, starred review
