The Invention of Medicine: From Homer to Hippocrates

While some of the material may be dense for non-classicists, there are many readers who will find the sections about how we tell and understand medical stories timely and important.

Augustine: Conversions to Confessions

Fox presents a complex, ever-changing, articulate, introspective, and idealistic philosopher sinner, revealing elements from Confessions and the author's many other titles. The volume would be best for readers to have some familiarity with the ancient Mediterranean or early church history. While this mountain of a book requires dedication and discipline, knowledge awaits those who reach the summit.

Thoughtful Gardening

Overall, the work is more appropriate for knowledgeable American gardeners than beginners. Readers should be forewarned that Lane Fox's methods are not organic. He also does not believe in the garden as wildlife habitat: he gleefully feeds weed-killer-laced milk to pesky rabbits, for example. Recommended for the largest public libraries and extensive gardening collections.
