    1. I'm skipping all through this trip of a tome.In and out -like sewing, I suppose.It's like pure oxygen. I can't put it down.

    2. As the title says, curiosities. Do not expect to learn medicine from this book but rather understand the history of medicine, on very selected aspects and topics.
