Would you listen to The End of Illness again? Why?

Yes, it is fun.

What about Holter Graham’s performance did you like?

His way of speaking is really good and understandable.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

His future perspective itself is reasonable and passionate.

Any additional comments?

The end of illness is a little bit overstated, but author's mind is powerful and impressive!
However, I am not entirely satisfied with its content. One is he overly emphasized the importance, for instance, of vitamineD. All in all, he speaks within his research field.
Again, the end of..is catchy name, but it is just that.
