Lots of lame stories from a really lame narrator
I work in health care so I read a lot of medical type books. I am giving this book low rating because only a few of the stories are actually interesting. None of them are presented as a "fascinoma", and many of them are not even unusual. The vast majority of presentations are from the early to mid 1900s. A few are downright lame--they don't even have a conclusion, just presenting some stupid things people do and no answer to why they did it. Most of the stories are pretty mediocre (hypoglycemia, for example) some are repeated only under a different patient name.
The performance is painful to listen to, like a cross between the Dick and Jane stories and a 1940s commercial. Kiser's pronunciations are unforgivably inaccurate and annoying.
The only redeeming quality of this book is that, as stated earlier, some of the stories are actually interesting and offer good insight into diagnosing a difficult case.

Needs better audio quality
Lots of very short stories. Some were quite interesting but swept on to the next story too soon.
The narration and audio quality were not that great, noticeably lower than most other audio books but tolerable.
