Great topic, but poor writing and bad performance
This book contains lots of interesting history of how important drugs were invented, including key principles of medicinal chemistry and Pharma strategy. Unfortunately, those gems are buried amongst boring details like the long biographies of unknown chemists. The chapters have no clear organization or flow. The narrator sounds like a spoof of a British royal on benzodiazepines, with tons of drug and chemistry mispronunciations.

Worst Narrator EVER
What would have made Blockbuster Drugs better?
The narration on this is abysmal. All sorts of odd (maybe overly British?) pronunciations i.e. meegrain for migraine, beeta blocker for beta blocker and the list goes on. So bad, I'm considering returning it as I'm not sure I can make it through 5 more hours of this. UGH... Really need to read a book similar to this for work...
How did the narrator detract from the book?
