Any additional comments?

Dr. Goodman references the bibliography and a list of resources many times in the book, yet Audible/Great Courses doesn't see fit to provide audible listeners these documents. It's a shame, I would have purchased many more of them if they had.

For the common man, not the health professional

This audio course is quite basic: I can't really penalize it for that. I'm sure for a lay reader, they will learn a lot (I'm a health professional). This course may save lives and years of life to those who are not very familiar with health topics. For the advanced (health / biology / medical majors / professionals) this will be too basic to the point where you don't feel you've learned anything new or gained any value. The teacher (passionate surgeon) is not monotonous so it wasn't a bore to listen to - though I typically listen to audiobooks with a 1.25x to 1.50x speed magnification to save time and also to not get bored...
