    In the spirit of Oliver Sacks Awakenings and the TV series House, Dr. Eric Manheimer's Twelve Patients is a memoir from the medical director of Bellevue Hospital that uses the plights of 12 very different patients - from dignitaries at the nearby UN, to supermax prisoners from Riker's Island, to illegal immigrants, and Wall Street tycoons - to illustrate larger societal issues.

    Story
    Where does Twelve Patients rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is very different to the rest of the ancient historic books that I normally read, but this was very interesting and eye opening to the daily reality of managing a Hospital


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    The knowledge and attention to detail


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

    His voice changes when needed, in some other chapters it seem still painful for him to re-live the past.


    If you could give Twelve Patients a new subtitle, what would it be?

    Life at Bellevue


    Any additional comments?

    Great to listen, a sad reflection of our society
