Disappointing book. As a long time blood donor, I was hoping the book would provide a complete story. The subtitle, “A journey through the money, medicine and mysteries of blood,” was quite promising. Unfortunately, the book seems to be cobbled together from a number of previously published articles, not well connected and only vaguely related to blood. At least two thirds of the book is filled with long stories about AIDS in South Africa, girls menstruating in Nepal, menstrual pads in Asia, leeches in medical history, complete with strong political opinions of the author. Not my cup of tea, and definitely not my pint of blood.
