    Happy Accidents is a fascinating, entertaining, and highly accessible look at the surprising role serendipity has played in some of the most important medical discoveries in the 20th century. What do penicillin, chemotherapy drugs, X-rays, Valium, the Pap smear, and Viagra have in common? They were each discovered accidentally, stumbled upon in the search for something else. In discussing medical breakthroughs, Dr. Morton Meyers makes a cogent, highly engaging argument for a more creative, rather than purely linear, approach to science. And it may just save our lives!

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    The material was interesting, but this was the worst narration of any book I've listened to. The narrator sounded like a person who just learned how to read English. The narration made the material incredibly boring at times.
