Asprin can be used to treat both the deadliest of diseases and the most common of minor discomforts: it's one of the most amazing pills in medical history and here receives its own story which has its roots in ancient Egypt. Writer Diarmuid Jeffreys specializes in reporting and documentary programs for TV. In Aspirin: The Remarkable Story Of A Wonder Drug, Jeffreys' style lends well to general-interest audiences interested in learning about the changing history of asprin from early through modern times.
