    ePUB The Ghost Map PDF EPUB ´ The GhostKindle - Ð baienme Ð ghost ebok, The Ghost epub, The Ghost Map ePUBWARNING Do not read this review if you are sueamish Or eatingThis book is about cholera and as a result the author uses an impressive number of words for shit including excrement ordure human waste and the Victorian euphemism night soil And shit of course Johnson explains that a key uestion in the development of civilization has always been What are we going to do with all this shit? This book dramatically improved my vocabulary regarding topics related to 1850s London For instancemiasmatist someone who believes that bad smelling air rather than germs or bacteria cause disease Florence Nightingale was a miasmatistpure finder someone who finds dogshit and sells it to tanners to use in the leathermaking processstoshers trash pickersmudlarks children who scavenge junk that toshers

    ePUB The Ghost Map PDF EPUB ´ The GhostKindle - Ð baienme Ð ghost ebok, The Ghost epub, The Ghost Map ePUBThis is an account of the 1854 cholera epidemic in London and of the work of John Snow who through his scientific investigations managed to establish that cholera was waterborne and that the source of this outbreak was the Broad Street pump This was going against the scientific opinion of the time a miasmic theory which argued that air small and conditions were responsible The book covers a variety of areas history biography detective work epidemiology and scientific investigation Johnson uses a Victorian novelist’s trick and takes a chapter to introduce each player The first chapter introduces the city of London and then the main players John Snow Rev Henry Whitehead Edwin Chadwick and William Farr The account of Snow’s investigations is fascinating The descriptions of the conditions in London before the sewer syste

    ePUB The Ghost Map PDF EPUB ´ The GhostKindle - Ð baienme Ð ghost ebok, The Ghost epub, The Ghost Map ePUBI enjoyed most of the book but I hated the concluding chapter I would have preferred it if he had stuck to his subject rather than stringing together a series of personal opinions The discussion of the relative risks of a nuclear holocaust versus bio terrorism via a genetically engineered virus seemed forced Does it really matter? The author somehow managed to work in references to both the Iranian nuclear policy and intelligent design in a book about cholera in the nineteenth century Was there an editor?

    ePUB The Ghost Map PDF EPUB ´ The GhostKindle - Ð baienme Ð ghost ebok, The Ghost epub, The Ghost Map ePUBThis book tells the true story of the London cholera epidemic in the 1850s and how Dr John Snow and Reverend Henry Whitehead eventually teamed up to solve the mystery of how the disease is transmitted At the time it was believed to be spread via “miasma” bad air and putrid smells Snow believed in the water born theory where vibrio cholerae bacteria is transmitted by drinking contaminated water Dr Snow mapped the progress of the disease tracing cases and deaths to find the source of the outbreak His methods were scientific but at the time superstitions and prevailing theories were ingrained and it was difficult to overcome the rigid thinking In fact one of the most enlightening aspects is observing how unproven speculations garner so much traction that evidence to the contrary is dismissed I particularly liked Steven Johnson

    ePUB The Ghost Map PDF EPUB ´ The GhostKindle - Ð baienme Ð ghost ebok, The Ghost epub, The Ghost Map ePUBExcept for the feeling of nausea that accompanies the reading at times this is a very interesting book about the cholera epidemic in 1854 before the existence of bacteriologyparasitology It is also the epic tale of John Snow who almost single handedly kept track of contamination pathways fought against the miasma theory and the biased and unscientific approach of his peers tried to locate and define the germ and still kept his hat on like a gentleman Amazing true story especially if you are interested in history of medicine John Snow is known as the father of Public Health and Germ theory in addition to his many contributions to medicine
