Lynne Truss
AudioFile, January 2014

Benjamin Soames breathes life into this chronological compendium of men and women who dramatically changed the practice of preventing, diagnosing, and treating illness and disease. His crisp English accent is easy on the American ear and gives an air of scholarliness to the production. From Hippocrates (460–370 BC) to modern DNA explorers Crick and Watson, the audiobook details groundbreaking medical pioneers and their advances in areas such as scientific methodology, sterilization, vaccination, and the human genome. Period music provides transitions to each new segment…Soames conveys a fascination with his topic that is infectious. © 2014 AudioFile Read complete review
