Christopher Scott's wild and theatrical interpretation of the characters from the practice of a British family physician fits the fun with which these stories unfold. All aspects of the doctor's life pop up, including stories of barging in on a French honeymoon and a patient who helps him pass a kidney stone. The audience for this light, gossipy fare will be those with a sense of humor and a curiosity about the life of a general practitioner. Although ribald and mischievous in many places, the first-person memoir covers the author's heart attack and coronary bypass operation and offers repentant observations on the ravages of smoking and the stresses of medicine. The production's mixture of merriment and message makes a pleasant audio experience. J.A.H. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 02]
