    PDF/EPUB smrl.me Á The Ghost Map PDF · The Ghost MOBI :Ù ghost epub, The Ghost download, The Ghost Map ePUBBy turns thought provoking and irritating The Ghost Map meanders from its central story how an unorthodox physician found the source of a cholera epidemic that swept through London in 1854 into a host of other issues Expecting a straightforward account of the unraveling of this medical myster

    PDF/EPUB smrl.me Á The Ghost Map PDF · The Ghost MOBI :Ù ghost epub, The Ghost download, The Ghost Map ePUBI read The Ghost Map The Story of London's Most Terrifying Epidemic and How It Changed Science Cities and the Modern World because I wanted to learn about a story I thought I knew The story I learned goes like this during a terrible cholera outbreak in Victorian London Dr John Snow made a revolutionary map of the mortality was like “Holy crap The deaths all radiate out from this one pump” and removed the pump handle thus halting the epidemic dead in its tracks Turns out there are about seven books worth of topics in here wrestling each other for space with brawny arms Were all of them woven seamlessly together into one multifaceted but logically coherent narrative

    PDF/EPUB smrl.me Á The Ghost Map PDF · The Ghost MOBI :Ù ghost epub, The Ghost download, 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 Sno

    PDF/EPUB smrl.me Á The Ghost Map PDF · The Ghost MOBI :Ù ghost epub, The Ghost download, 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
