I origanally gave this title 3 stars but gave it a 2nd listen and found it much more enjoyable and made sense.
This book sets out to explain how clinicians (physicians) think when assessing a patient. How they come to conclusions and the joy or angst re: outcome. I'm a retired RN and I identified w/ these trials. I would recommend this anyone who can handle the truth. Physicians, Nurses etc are people subject to error and also amazing hard won ability to critical thinking, problem solving and to guiding a patient in the direction of improving health.
The book is written in a novel format not as a didactic; and the author is certainly not a pedant.
Yes it held my attention throughout. If I had the time I would have listened in one sitting easily.
This book had me interested almost from the 1st page. The twist on the plot is a time traveling historian lands at the very beginning of the BLACK PLAGUE in a small British village. Some of the narrative especially the progression of the disease and the assumed fear & despair, might be too depressing for some. Bottom line - I enjoyed the plot, content and the narrator.
