She interviewed the most celebrated and innovative doctors, researchers, and medical scientists, and visited their laboratories. What she discovered is revealed in this astonishing work through her observant eye and splendid prose. Cancer, heart disease, and devastating ailments, she predicts, will be blights of the past. One of the greatest revolutions in medicine will be created by the advances in computers and telecommunications. Surgery, we learn, will be performed from afar. After too many years, medicine is at long last poised to absorb and exploit the triumphs of the computer and the information revolution."@en ;
