This was a great tread through some medical history. I have to say, though, he sounded like a quack. But I still enjoyed the history lesson.

Thanks. Restraints are still being used though with the really combative patients but nowadays they'd be forcibly medicating them instead. Whether Willis is a pioneer or a quack seems to depend on who you ask.

This makes a very interesting read on the strangely hateful relationship between King George III and various doctors who treated him. This is quite informative as well.
