Very enjoyable

I always enjoy a British accent narrating a book. I especially enjoyed it in a doctor memoir. It was fun listening to the different terminology as compared to the U.S. And overall, the stories he had to tell were just good medical tales. He did have a bit of a judgemental tone on a few occasions but each to his own.

Interesting

This was written by a doctor from the U.K., and tells many stories of his years working as a doctor, in many different areas. It's very well written, lots of information on how the health care system works there.
He also recalls some of his most memorable cases, many of them being quite funny, while others tug at your heartstrings. I've listened to this twice and enjoyed it just as much the second time. The author has also written a second part, but I couldn't find it available as audio, so I'm reading it on my kindle.
The narrator does an A Plus job . Well worth the buy.
