Narrator Michael Prichard is a welcome sweetener to make the medicine of this program go down. He delivers the demanding scientific vocabulary without a single error--e.g., homocysteine thyolactones--as though the words were everyday terms. The message consists of the causes of high blood pressure and its relationship with heart disease, stroke, and atherosclerosis. The author ventures into the controversial territory of giving his own prescriptions for drugs, vitamins, and foods to control and prevent hypertension. Having this reader, with his pleasant, conversational style, might be the only way for the average listener to complete an audiobook that borders on being lectures for medical students.
