For example, in the chapter on Three Forms of Sudden Death, the section on asphyxiation combines: the ancients beliefs about the role of respiration and life, the phenomenon and chances of choking, and a discussion of sleep apnea syndrome and nightmares. Gonzalez-Crussis lucid style imparts medical knowledge with a mixture of humor and reverence. Readers will find each essay enjoyable, informative, and reflective.
