This book is an insult to the reader

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Another writer, another narrator.

Has A Prescription for Retail Pharmacy turned you off from other books in this genre?

No, as a physician, I would like more information in this area, but not from this author.

What didn’t you like about Jean-Marc Bovee’s performance?

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.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

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.

Any additional comments?

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.

Angry Technician

I wanted to understand more about retail pharmacy operations; this was like one big rant.

Condescending and goes on a rant about Hispanics. I’m out.

I was genuinely interested in this and tried listening to it for about an hour. His tone is condescending the whole time to make everyone else around him look like an idiot. This piece is a 4 hour rant. This is more of a guide what pisses him off about the industry and not a general guide to the industry as he states.
He started ranting about how Hispanics expect him to speak their language and how they’re problematic in US society due to their illegal status.

Skip this book

Would you try another book from Jean-Marc Bovee and/or Jean-Marc Bovee?

I am not going to try another book from this author.

Would you ever listen to anything by Jean-Marc Bovee again?

I am not going to listen to anything by this author again.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

This author/narrator detracts from the book.

Any additional comments?

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 informative

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.
