A beautiful story about Christopher Eccleston's father. His life , his family and his dementia.
Also an autobiography of the actor and an insight into working class life in the 1960's and 70's
Also a useful description about mental illness.
A great book

I've been a doctor for over 30 years and enjoyed the book immensely.
Loved the stories about the famous, ( and less famous) characters in medicine and the amazing complexity of our bodies and disease
An interesting overview of over investigation( particularly in USA) and Health Outcomes ( US & UK excellent examples)
I found the pronunciation of some words slightly jarring to UK ears, but perhaps I've said it wrong for nearly 4 decades!!!

The story of the early Apollo missions through the eyes of Me Charl Collins. An astonishing achievement and hard to believe that it happened 50 years ago

A fascinating insight into the history of the American and Russian space race . It is hard to believe that much of the era is almost a forgotten era and that so few of the moon walkers are still alive
