'Fascinating ... Aspirin appears to be one of the most useful drugs ever discovered. Thanks to the work of all the scientists so deservedly recalled in this books, it is also extremely cheap: in fact no drug is cheaper. Perhaps there is something in the notion of providence after all' * Anthony Daniels, Sunday Telegraph *

'An enthralling read ... fascinating ... the author pieces the jigsaw together in thriller style' * David O'Donoghue, Sunday Business Post *
