Nine Pints and Other Stories description

It can save us or kill us; it is revered and feared across the globe; it is the world’s most valuable liquid, and nine pints of it are in us all.  Rose George’s Nine Pints, is a fascinating and unexpected odyssey through the science and culture of blood.  From the economics of blood donorship, to the fight against HIV, to the rediscovery of the medical leech, blood, Rose argues, is always political.
