The setting of this "story" jumps from 2 Doctors mingling at a party, to an IM conversation they are having, to just plain dictation of medical jargon. Their conversations outside of answeing the medical questions makes no sense and was just a plain waste of time. Some of the questions were interesting, but the explanations were over my head and I therefore didn't learn much.
The only advice I got from this book that I understood and can remember is, "Don't hold in a sneeze". I just saved you 4+ hours of listening time, a massive sinus infection, and a couple of bucks I hope - Skip this one.
The information could have been interesting but the endless banter and the very BAD landguage was to much. I did not finish the book. I rate this as one of the worst books I ever purchased.
I loved the actual contect part of the book, why things are. It is just the senseless banter between the two writers that makes the book difficult to listen to.
Would that I had read these other reviews before purchasing this audio book. Oy! Bad attempt at Borsht-belt humor from two self-absorbed New Yawkers. The topic could have been fun and an interesting listen if the authors were less intent on padding out their meager book(let) with their own mindless prattle, and actually answered some of the questions they asked. Answers are short, abrupt and incomplete, and what could have been fun romp through medical human interest stuff was instead a complete waste of time.
When this book did address the medical questions, I found it interesting, and sometimes entertaining. However, the chat logs between the authors were pointless, in bad taste and dragged on endlessly.
Not a bad attempt for a doctors first try, but horrible from the perspective of a "seasoned writer" as his cohort purports to be.
This is one book I would return if I could.
At times this book is exactly what the reader is expecting it to be, medical answers to common questions/misconceptions about the human body.
HOWEVER, to get there, you must absolutely suffer through tedious dialogues between the book's co-authors.
My recommendation, sorry audible, is to get the paper copy of this one. It will be far easier to skip the nonsense.
