Not for a hypochondriac!

The incorrect pronunciation of many medical terms was very irritating. Please re-record this correctly. Many of the stories were very basic and will bore those with some medical background but most are fascinating and all well presented, succinct and suspenseful for any layman. Beware that everyone will identify with symptoms in some of the stories so anyone with hypochondriac tendencies should avoid this.

Tedious

Half of the book seems to be repetitive biographies of the contributors to the book. The incidents themselves were lacking although I'm sure not so to the individuals involved.

Phenomenal and fascinating

This book is very well written, well narrated and an absolute pleasure to listen to! Get it and you will be drawn in to the interesting case presentations, it is by far my favorite Audible book so far!

Unique and entertaining

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed listening to the articles and trying to figure out what was going on in each situation. I have a fairly substantial history with medicine, which helped, but I don't think would be necessary to enjoy this book.
I very rarely give 5 star reviews; I reserve those for books that change my life. While this one was educational and fascinating, it just didnt blow my cocks off.
