Spanning science and politics, stories and global epidemics, Rose George’s Nine Pints takes us from ancient practices of bloodletting to current research seeking to bring synthetic blood to a hospital near you.
Blood carries life, yet the sight of it makes people faint. It is a waste product and a commodity pricier than oil. It can save lives and transmit deadly infections. Each one of us has roughly nine pints of it, yet many don't even know their own blood type.
