Review:

"It is to Professor Goddards credit that he does not trade on his international reputation as a radiologist, or a pioneer of Magnetic Resonance Imaging. In fact., his specialty is barely alluded to, Instead he is everymans Virgil, guiding the reader through a medical timeline." -- B Kelly, Consultant Radiologist, The Royal Hospitals, Belfast.
