    Here's the first in a new series of in-depth discussions on a variety of subjects relating to humanity's greatest endeavors. Around the table, Ricky Gervais, Steve Merchant and the glabrous luminary Karl Pilkington. In this episode, MEDICINE, we explore the treatment of human ailments through history - from trepanation (or 'oles in the 'ed) in early tribal societies right through to the possible, if improbable, future of medical technology.

    If you could sum up The Ricky Gervais Guide to... MEDICINE in three words, what would they be?

    Funny, entertaining, unexpected


    Any additional comments?

    A little crass. The ignorance of these regular guys is very entertaining. I wish it had been two or three times longer.

  • Wheat Belly: Lose the Wheat, Lose the Weight, and Find Your Path Back to Health

    Story
    (1635)

    Since the introduction of dietary guidelines calling for reduced fat intake in the 1970s, a strange phenomenon has occurred: Americans have steadily, inexorably become heavier, less healthy, and more prone to diabetes than ever before. After putting more than two thousand of his at-risk patients on a wheat-free regimen and seeing extraordinary results, cardiologist William Davis has come to the disturbing conclusion that it is not fat, not sugar, not our sedentary lifestyle that is causing America’s obesity epidemic—it is wheat.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Maybe. I would recommend this book for someone who doesn't know a lot about healing through nutrition. They will learn some things. For someone who has been working on "cleaning up" their diet, I would not recommend this book. They will learn more about the dangers of wheat consumption, but not much else.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    The last hour of the book was somewhat helpful. It was, however, written from an anti-wheat perspective and did not take into account many other concerns such as vegan/vegetarianism or glutamate sensitivities. The entire book was written, I think, in an irreverent tone in an attempt to entertain. I did not enjoy it. I did not think it was funny and found it offensive in many places. The first 6.5 hours were informative, but also contained a lot of repetition which I found kind of a waste of time.


    What does Tom Weiner bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Nice pace and rhythm.
