Two authors who have started a fictional counseling practice offer a running dialogue about the obscure medical questions people ask them. Dr. Goldberg, the presumed straight man, makes fun of men, women, and often his writing partner. The other author, Mark Leyner, who is also the narrator, has a vocal personality that adds its own measure of energy (though hearing him talk about himself in the third person is disorienting). Almost whispering at times, Leyner sounds so intimate, or perhaps self-conscious, that some of the humorous content becomes neutralized. Entertaining, if not memorable, this may be the audio you listen to when you have nothing else to do. T.W. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 07]
