Publisher's Summary

Written by a leading dermatologist, The Blue Man and Other Stories of the Skin provides a compelling and accessible introduction to the life of our largest organ, while also recounting the author’s experiences with memorable patients he has treated who suffer from mysterious skin conditions. Robert Norman begins by highlighting the qualities of the skin, tracing the history of its conditions and diseases, then examining the cultural, social and psychological impact of both color and irregularity. The audiobook also features an absorbing collection of stories about some of his most intriguing patients: from a man whose skin mysteriously turned blue, to a hypochondriacal woman who begins to show signs of a life-threatening disease. This is a fascinating account of the dynamic nature of the skin, and the people who inhabit it.

Irritating performance

What disappointed you about The Blue Man?

The narrator's pronunciation of the word skin irked me from the very beginning, to the point where I couldn't listen any more. Also very poor performance in general, very sing song.

Would you ever listen to anything by Dr. Robert Norman again?

I would give him another chance. I'd give this book another chance if it was narrated by someone else.

How could the performance have been better?

Get someone else.
