Thanks to Auburn for sharing this review.  I just received my copy from
Amazon - a beautiful book, representing excellent scholarship.  It received
5 stars in its Doody review, and has been mentioned on several nursing
lists.  It was inspiring to read about the author.

Nightingale was more than the founder of modern nursing.  Among other
accomplishments, she was the first to use statistics to improve hospital
conditions.  This book belongs in every health sciences, history, and
womens' studies collection.

I will forward to appropriate nursing lists.

Thanks again - Peg
