Hi all

I wondered if anybody could recommend any good 'popular science books' for medical students?

I'll be starting (graduate entry) medicine in October, and it'd be good to know a few easy reading books to start me thinking about the sorts of topics we'll be covering -- anatomy, physiology etc.

Obviously, I know a popular science book will only scratch the surface, but that's great: I'm not looking to read a textbook, just something to whet my appetite in the run up.

To get the thread started, here are a few which others may be interested in:

Life at the Extremes is a fantastic little book introducing some basic physiology through looking at different extreme conditions.

Power, Sex and Suicide I've not read yet, but is apparently about mitochondria.

Well I'm not a medic or anything...more of a prospective medic and I came across this book about medical ethics and its a real page turner. The book is Medical Ethics: A Very Short Introduction by Tony Hope. Hope you enjoy it
