    Sometimes in medicine the only way to know what is truly going on in a patient is to operate, to look inside with one's own eyes. This book is exploratory surgery on medicine itself, laying bare a science not in its idealized form but as it actually is - complicated, perplexing, and profoundly human.

    T.K. says: "It's about time..."
    "Great book"
    Overall

    This is a great and informative book. However, it would be even better unabridged. There is a lot of good stuff left out of this abridged version.

    Not since Jurassic Park has Michael Crichton given you such a magnificent adventure. Timeline opens on the threshold of the 21st century, and carries you into a realm of unexpected suspense and danger, overturning your most basic ideas of what is possible.

    Brian says: "Fun Story"
    "Favorite Crichton Book"
    Overall

    I read the book AND listened to it, it's that good. A dash of French history, medicine, physics, mystery, and adventure. Highly recommended.
