In Cure, award-winning science writer Jo Marchant travels the world to meet the physicians, patients and researchers on the cutting edge of this new world of medicine. We learn how meditation protects against depression and dementia, how social connections increase life expectancy and how patients who feel cared for recover from surgery faster. We meet Iraq war veterans who are using a virtual arctic world to treat their burns and children whose ADHD is kept under control with half the normal dose of medication.

The story is excellent as is the content, however the narrator switches accents to quote others. It’s distracting from fantastic information and sounds bizarre and awkward to the point I almost bailed on the audio book.

"Understand your brain, improve your relationships." That's what Stan Tatkin has learned from his leading-edge work as a researcher and couples therapist. In this complete audio learning program, he merges current insights from neurobiology and attachment theory to help us shift out of conflict and into deeper and more loving connections. Listeners first learn to identify attachment styles - the patterns of intimacy that begin in our earliest years - both in ourselves and in those around us.

Great content delivered in a conversational style that is very enjoyable and accessible.

Why on earth they broke the friendly stride of the audiobook with what I came to call the "bad zen phone sex operator" I'll never understand.

Any additional comments?

I liked the question and answer format as it made for something different to listen to during my long drive. The content was excellent. Listening to Deepak Chopra is always enjoyable for me as I enjoy his voice but I found the woman narrator who he paired with annoying to the point of wanting to turn it off and did several times. I thought she added too much drama and overly emoted the reading of the letters. I know many of them were quite emotional but for my tastes it was too much.
