DOCTORS The History of Scientific Medicine Revealed Through Biography

by | Read by Sherwin B. Nuland

History • 6 hrs. • Audio Program • © 2005

The professor turns the history of medicine into a story for all listeners. Using biographies of the greatest physicians as his resource, he dissects their important discoveries and provides notes on their sordid details. Hearing about surgery before anesthesia beats any Stephen King novel for terror -- it was done in high towers so others couldn't hear the screams. However, the downfall comes in the delivery. Dr. Nuland lowers his voice to an inaudible level in many phrases and at the end of sentences, making important information disappear. He also adds frequent long pauses between words, which slow the pace. However, the messenger's minor defects don't diminish one's enjoyment of the message.
