A very informative account of the London 1850s cholera outbreak. The author presents the facts well and rounds them of with well-placed literary examples from Dickens. There are good comparatives with evolutionary biology on how a society functions.
All in all a very important book and definitely commendable.

Great start of a book but the author doesn’t carry through a d doesn’t justify the title which seems to promise cimpleteness.

The book is a fun romp across connected technologies and how they enabled each other leading to deep changes in culture and society.

The author reviews the key factors which drove up life expectancy and how they came to be. The story is a perfect “science” communication piece because the author takes apart these factors into what it really rakes for knowledge to become life saving practice.

There are many important things to note:
- how culturally we celebrate wars so much more than health innovation which saves lives
- how we believe that private sector delivers results in health innovation when it is mostly been able to deliver distribution
- how health innovation is so much more complicated than the science alone because how it translates to policy makes all the difference
- how dogma even in the science community can make it hard to deliver health

Basically the vision of how science impacts health in the public is so different from what actually happened and how technology impacted life expectancy. Pretty much everyone should be aware of this history, particularly in a pandemic.

Good health needs passionate evidence based drivers, and a practical public policy translation…
