MEDICAL MYTHS THAT CAN KILL YOU is more of a lecture than an audiobook. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but by reading it herself, Snyderman loses the extra zing that a more experienced audiobook performer could have given it. Once again, it's a case of "reading" versus "performing." Snyderman, chief medical editor for NBC News, sounds stiff reading her own work. Because the huge amount of good information contained—for example, it's good to feed a cold but bad to starve a fever—is valuable and too much to remember, it might be better to buy the book in print and keep it on hand for reference.
