The Castel of Helth has been called "a popular, sensible treatise on healthful living, with sound and practical advice on the recognition of the commoner symptoms of disease, as well as what to do about them" (Hunt). In it Elyot clearly states that he is not a physician, and that he was educated at home. In his introduction he provides a list of the authors he had read in philosophy and medicine, adding that a "worshipful physician" read to him Galen and certain other authors. It is very possible that this physician was Thomas Linacre
