I really enjoyed the content of the book. The reader destroyed some pretty simple names that erode my enjoyment of the book. They grate on my nerves, like his pronunciation of the word shallots. I love Ruhlman's books, this is no exception. I would prefer to read this text.
The back story is the author is dying of cancer. While your first instinct is this book is about joining him on his death march, that's a headfake, this is about joining him in his quest for life. Have specific dreams. Be ernest.
There is a lot of wisdom in this book. Great listen.
The book hinges on very interesting concepts, at how disease is passed through generations. It could have been much shorter and the story behind it much more succint. I listened to a book in similar length in two days whereas this took me over a month.
Good book. Interesting ways of viewing social problems and applying tools from different disciplines to social issues.
