Recommendations: Dr. Ruth K. Westheimer, Dr. Eckart von Hirschhausen

“To me it’s just fascinating that at the end of the year 2009 we are interested in books from long ago. I’m thinking of the monograph ‘Fritz Kahn – Man Machine’, for example, or of ‘The Red Book’ of C. G. Jung, which was published just recently. They lead us to the conclusion that we should not forget ‘old’ people and their books but learn from them instead. As for Kahn, I found particularly interesting that he, as a gynaecologist, did not really understand women but was able to beautifully visualize the male erection. This book is fascinating – not only for sexologists.”

“That’s how medical knowledge is given to the world. This book is a lucky strike!”
Dr. Eckart von Hirschhausen
