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

    Highly recommend this book for anyone thinking about bariatric surgery. It covers before, during and after. It explains all the different procedures. Makes you think about whether or not you should even have a procedure..... Just get it.

    Very plain spoken...easy to understand


    Have you listened to any of Pam Dougherty’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Not sure. Very clear. Great delivery


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No way.....way too much information


    Any additional comments?

    Nope
