THE UNSEEN BODY A Doctor's Journey Through the Hidden Wonders of Human Anatomy

by | Read by Robert Petkoff

Contemporary Culture • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Narrator Robert Petkoff's voice is the perfect conduit for this engaging mix of medicine and travel. In each chapter, physician Jonathan Reisman discusses a key part of the body. Petkoff's even-keeled tone takes us on the author's tour of anatomy--through the vagaries of mucus, into the black box of the brain, and past the fragility of fingers and toes, among other journeys. His delivery smoothly blends the physiology with Reisman's travel stories, which include sampling blubber in Alaska, consuming lungs in Jaffa, and flirting with frostbite in Russia. Petkoff gives a flawless performance of this doctor/naturalist's memoir, conveying both his inquisitiveness and assuredness with aplomb.
