It's no secret that the US health care system is in a state of disrepair, but the rabbit hole goes deeper than even the staunchest critics may realize. In Primal Prescription, authors Doug McGuff and Robert Murphy combine their expertise in economics and medicine to offer a shocking, disturbing, and ultimately enlightening view into America's health care system. You'll discover the real history of what went wrong with US health care and insurance, and why current efforts to clean up the mess are only making things worse.
But far from leaving you feeling helpless at the dismal - and sometimes deadly - state of affairs, Primal Prescription equips you with both the knowledge to understand the health care conundrum and the tools for navigating your way out of it. McGuff and Murphy offer an evidence-based "game plan" for taking control of your own medical care, protecting yourself and your loved ones regardless of what the future holds for the rest of the nation.
Whether you're currently tangled in America's broken health care system or simply trying to avoid its clutches, Primal Prescription is a must-have resource for taking your health into your own hands.

Great to hear the specific case points and to hear Murphy's take on things.
Narrator chortles whenever he encounters anything remotely ironic or striking. But, his voice and manner was otherwise very much appropriate.
I have not read the print version, but I intend to. This audio version is a disgrace to the content. Brad Kearns reads way to fast to allow me to absorb the content of what he is reading. Then he includes annoying .....chuckles. Everywhere! We are talking about health care in America today. Its not even remotely amusing. I couldn't take much of this. In fact, it got even worse as the book went on.
The solutions offered for some of our basic health care issue today. But, like I stated, I could not absorb the valuable content so I am returning this audio version and buying the book. America desperately needs this book. Shame on you for casting this reader.
This is full of excellent, well written information on the primary illnesses of today's "health care" system. If highly recommend for any of my friends and family. However, the narrator was lousy. Constantly interjecting his own attitude into the information. If you can get past that, it's a great listen.
This book was great! I love the way they structured the information. Everything led up to the conclusion, which was, take control of the situation yourself. I will read this book again to make notes on how to organize my own health care.
The narrator's frequent laughter, poor pausation, and inconsistent pronunciation was disturbing to the flow of thought. However, poor narration is better than no narration :-)
If you are interested how the government screwed up healthcare and how Obamacare will make things worse, this book is for you.
The narrator is good and the content is really fascinating. My favorite part of this book though is that they give practical advice on how to take control of your health.
Rarely have I come across such a poorly narrated book. I am extremely surprised that Audible chose to publish this. The contents of the book itself, doubtless written by knowledgeable people, made sense. But it also highlighted the significant drawback of audiobooks, viz., that a narrator can so distract and confuse the reader, they would have to give up on the book. In a printed book, the reader can choose to skip ahead if a part of the book is boring or uninteresting. Audiobooks, however, don't afford this luxury. I'm extremely disappointed that I had to quit reading it. Clearly, this narrator, the authors, publisher, and Audible all share the blame. And, of course, the spoils.
as for the content and the style the book was written I definitely give it a thumbs up. What really bothered me was the speaker. It was read as if I were listening to a lecture and it ruined the feel of reading and objectivity of reading allpwing me to interpret the book myself instead of getting his ironic tones and sarcastic laughter. I don't care for that at all. but the book as a whole was very insightful on the history as well as medical implementation of the primal framework. I enjoy economics and I enjoy medicine this is definitely a good read.
The state of healthcare in the US is depressing so the first two parts of this book are not a joy to listen to (but the information is extremely important to hear and absorb). The value comes in part three where they arm you to succeed in managing your health. Great stuff!
