Semmelweis, the Women’s Doctor

cover

The Life and Work of pioneering physician Ignaz P. Semmelweis, who discovered the causes and means of prevention of childbed fever, the H.I.V. and cancer of his day. Called the “Father of Antisepsis,” he was largely ignored, placed in an asylum and murdered. He was a man who did good for women.

“His life was a beneficial example for all mankind.” Kurt Vonnegut

“To be sure, Semmelweis was a pioneering physician and scientist whose accomplishments should be studied for their contributions to science. But he was also a feminist, and his work should be understood in that vein, also.”–Ellen Nerenberg, Hollis Professor of Romance Languages & Literatures, Wesleyan University

Looking at and understanding someone like Semmelweis on a deep level and how he combated prejudices and prevailing thoughts and changed the way medicine is practiced is as relevant today as it was in the 1840s.—
Prakash Sampath, M.D. President, Rhode Island Neurological Institute.

From the author: … the hope is that today, around the world, at this moment, when one is passing surely one of millions of hand sanitizers and uses it to cleanse the hands, a thought can possibly go out to Dr. Ignaz Semmelweis and a fuller understanding, and appreciation, of his life and work.

Critics are saying: “Inspirational and very well written.”
