Internal Medicine Physician. Enjoy listening to history and nonfiction when driving in the car, exercising or when I am too tired to read.
Another writer, another narrator.
No, as a physician, I would like more information in this area, but not from this author.
He has a condescending tone and a high pitched voice causes me to cringe just listening to him. I tried to endure this title, but just could not.
It might, somewhere, but I couldn't get through it. Too annoying to listen to for long enough at one sitting. I tried several times, just to be sure it wasn't my mood, or bad mood.
Maybe some of you can tolerate this, but I have been listening to audio books for many years and don't ever remember one that I couldn't bear to listen to. Bad content, bad delivery. The author has made some attempt to give his point of view of what it is like to be a pharmacist, but only the "hassles" of being a retail pharmacist and having to deal with the public. He sounds like he doesn't value his customers. He thinks they ask stupid questions, ask too many questions and are in general morons. He doesn't like pharmacy techs much either. Mostly this is his long reiteration of what a pain in the neck it is to be a retail pharmacist.
I am not going to try another book from this author.
I am not going to listen to anything by this author again.
This author/narrator detracts from the book.
This book is nothing more than a pharmacist venting and degrading the patients he serves. I can barely make it through the first few chapters. As a future pharmacist, I'm highly disappointed with this book's content and would not recommend it for any healthcare professional. If you're a patient/customer, listen to this book to hear what one might think behind the scenes. This is of no help to anyone.
Funny and pretty educational for anyone who wants a behind the scenes look at the retail pharmacy. It's a must-read for anyone considering a career in pharmacy.
