Award description

"The Wellcome Trust Book Prize will highlight the value literature can bring to medicine by recognising the outstanding books that change the way each of us understands health and disease. The Wellcome Trust aims to stimulate interest, excitement and debate about medicine and literature, reaching audiences not normally engaged with medical science."
