IF IT SOUNDS LIKE A QUACK... A Journey to the Fringes of American Medicine

by | Read by Jamie Renell

Contemporary Culture • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

This audiobook evokes both disbelief and dismay. It recounts true stories of hucksters and how they came to believe that only they knew the one way to cure medical conditions that science--with all of its research, testing, and proven methods--couldn't. Jamie Renell does a superb job of walking a fine line between incredulity and shock as he shares stories of mostly well-intentioned people doing mostly wacky things to try cure the ailments of family and friends. Some of these stories will leave listeners disbelieving how gullible people can be. Others make one wonder how smart people can do such dumb things. This is an entertaining listen for anyone who has ever wondered: "How could someone think that would ever work?" J.P.S. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2023]
