Tony Dowell reviewing the book in DECEMBER 2013 issue of Journal of Primary Health Care Wilson and Cunningham's - way is to compromise neither the science of medicine nor its humanity. They manage to keep things simple without being naive. They show us complexity without making it impenetrable. They integrate medicine's disparate strands and roles into coherence without loss of identity. To have succeeded in this task is an act of healing on a grand - a global - scale. The lessons they teach and the vision they vouchsafe are every bit as relevant to us in the UK as in their own homeland.
