Inspiring!

This book taught me things about the human body that were completely new to me and gave me the chance to meditate on spiritual truths that I had never even considered before.
The reader has some odd vocal inflections and pronunciations that can throw off your thoughts, so be sure to listen while not overly distracted.

Radio DJ rather than narrator

This is read by someone who sounds like a radio dj and lets his deep bass voice rise and fall to sound because it sounds good for radio rather than reading with expression and drama like one would read a good book. It absolutely ruins the experience. I quit listening to it before the first chapter because the narrator just ruined it. Ugh!

A good book, grating reader

Though medically a bit out of date (of course) the book truly brings wonder -the analogies are appropriate and poignant. The reader's elocution is syrupy -he sounds like a geriatric vitamin salesman. This is so distracting that it os hard at times to listen.

Very profound

The depth of wisdom and knowledge of Paul Brand is incredible, so much meat and potatoes.

Highly recommended.

Touching insights

A beautiful and profound combination of biology, analogy, and autobiography. I found this book gently convicting and uniquely inspiring.
