Telling the compelling stories behind mankind's never-ending quest to cure every disease, Kill or Cure uses an all-new format — a text-rich narrative combined with DK's beautiful visual design — to trace the extraordinary history of medicine.

Beginning with early healers, chance discoveries, technological advancement, and "wonder" drugs, and using panels, timelines, and thematic spreads, Kill or Cure highlights information about human anatomy, surgical instruments, and medical breakthroughs while telling the dramatic tale of medical progress. Diaries, notebooks, and other first-person accounts tell the fascinating stories from the perspective of people who witnessed medical history firsthand.
