Cristin to Give Mütter Lecture at Cleveland Musuem of Natural History (Jan 13)

Posted on

From the Cleveland Museum of Natural History website: “Join New York Times bestselling author Cristin O’Keefe Aptowicz as she discusses the life and career of the famous surgeon Thomas Dent Mütter as detailed in her book “Dr. Mütter’s Marvels: A True Tale of Intrigue and Innovation at the Dawn of Modern Medicine.” “Dr. Mütter’s Marvels” chronicles the remarkable life of Dr. Thomas Dent Mütter (1811-1859): a dazzling, young American surgeon who was so flamboyant and audacious that he wore colorful silk suits to perform surgery, embellished his last name with an umlaut, and was described as the “[P.T.] Barnum of the surgery room.” Mütter was a revolutionary figure whose compassion-based philosophies and innovative surgical ideas and breakthroughs clashed with the constraints of his time. The vast collection of medical oddities he amassed to serve as teaching tools for his enormously popular lectures as a professor of medicine would later become the foundation for one of the most (in)famous museums in the world: Philadelphia’s Mütter Museum. Please note that specimens from the Mütter Museum will not be on display at this event. A book signing follows the talk, which is free with general admission. The book is available for purchase in the Museum Store.” Here’s a link to the FB event page to RSVP & spread the word!

DR MUTTER’S MARVELS Makes Seven “BEST OF 2014″ Lists

Posted on

Cristin is humbled & honored the seven different publications named Dr Mütter’s Marvels as one of their “Best Books of 2014.” Amazon.com named it as one of their Best Science Books of 2014, as did NPR’s Science Friday, US trade publication Library Journal and the UK newspaper The Guardian. The Onion’s AV Club named it one of their best books of 2014, noting “The book is ceaselessly interesting but not showy, and Aptowicz expertly paints the scenes with broad brushstrokes and tiny details. It’s a nearly perfect piece of non-fiction.” School Library Journal named it one of 2014′s Best Adult Books 4 Teens, noting, “Dr. Mütter’s larger-than-life, showman’s personality and incredible medical advancements pair thrillingly with Aptowicz’s enthusiastic writing to deliver many unbelievable facts that readers will need to share with friends.” And lastly, NJ’s own Asbury Park Press named it the Best Book of the Year, noting “A truly Philadelphian saga deftly told by City of Brotherly Love native Cristin O’Keefe Aptowicz, Dr. Mütter’s Marvels is a comprehensive and engaging biography of 19th-century surgeon, teacher and author Dr. Thomas Dent Mütter. Best known these days as the founding force behind the Mütter Museum of the College of Physicians of Philadelphia, Mütter was essential at shaping the course of medicine in innumerable ways, and Aptowicz navigates his too-short and highly influential life expertly.”

MÜTTER’S MARVELS.

MÜTTER’S MARVELS, has received a prestigious starred review from Kirkus Reviews, “long considered the book industry’s most ferocious trade publication” (Washington Post). The review raved, “In her deftly crafted narrative, the author provides an absorbing account of the charismatic surgeon’s life and career as well as a vivid look at the medical practices and prejudices of his time. His students adored him, and the disfigured flocked to him… Aptowicz draws nicely on Mütter’s speeches and lectures to reveal the depth of his empathetic philosophies and humanist approach… Mütter’s healing work inspired former students, from the celebrated Civil War surgeon Jonathan Letterman to the pharmaceutical manufacturer E.R. Squibb. His life story will move many readers.” The Kirkus Star is one of the most prestigious designations in the book industry, used to help readers “discover books of exceptional merit.” To read the full review, click here.
