“Carleton Chapman (and his ever-supportive wife) devoted ten arduous years to mastering the mountains of Billing’s work and to appreciating the alpine personality that defined the life of John Shaw Billings. The result is a magnificent tribute to this remarkable surgeon and to Chapman who has left us such a worthy and fascinating Memoir.” —Annals of Surgery
