Poetry from the viewpoint of a teenage, very early 20s woman who spent more time writing about the relationships than relating. Most of the poems are of some interest and a few are brilliant. But inept runs at sexual connection do wear a bit, especially from 50-60+ years ahead.

Very well researched, though the available material was scanty. Wish there had been diaries or letters, but the author did a great job bringing Mutter to life with what was available

This really was a fabulous biography! Mutter was truly a medical pioneer---full of compassion and making the most of his short life, while revolutionizing surgery and medical care techniques in an age of transition.

I loved how Mutter showed such humble love and care for the people around him---giving glory to God for the lives that were healed and saved.

This biography was easy to read and intriguing. Fabulous work!

I had no idea that this man was such an important part of advancing early American medicine. This book gave me a deep appreciation for Dr. Mütter’s humanity, industriousness, and genius. Now I am planning a trip to his Museum.
