By Arthur S. Levine, MD
A Pitt Med Magazine favorite section is now a book. "Jumping Spiders and One-Eyed Lambs" compiles 20 years of Art Levine's columns on matters of life, death and well-being. As a leader in academic medicine, Levine offers prognoses and prescriptions for the most vexing health issues facing our nation. In other essays, he shines a light on biologies that make us tick. Throughout these pages, Art Levine's love for the humanities is as evident as is his fascination with nature. Foreword by Patrick Gallagher. Edited by Erica Lloyd.
