A fascinating insight into Roald Dahl's life, by Professor Tom Solomon.
Most people know Roald Dahl as a famous writer of children's books and adult short stories, but few are aware of his fascination with medicine. Right from his earliest days to the end of his life, Dahl was intrigued by what doctors do, and why they do it.
In this unique book, Professor Tom Solomon examines Dahl's interest in everything medical. Taking examples from Dahl's life, and illustrated with exerpts from his writing, the book uses Dahl as a starting point to explore some extraordinary areas of medical science. The book is peppered with anecdotes from Dahl's late-night hospital discussions with Solomon, which give new insights into this remarkable man's thinking as his life came to an end.
One hundred per cent of author royalties from this book are donated to six charities working in areas that were of interest to Roald Dahl.
