Evidence based life sciences at its best.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Absolutely. Dr.Goodman is definitely a great teacher in medicine who can simplify very complex and confusing scientific evidences into concise, simplified yet practical to the listener. It is a "Must read or listen" for everyone who cares to live a good life. It will shed light for those who has been getting lost spending their whole life trying to find a magic bullet from outside only to find that it can simply be done from our inside. Great not only for layman, but also for medical students.

What other book might you compare Lifelong Health: Achieving Optimum Well-Being at Any Age to and why?


What does Dr. Anthony A. Goodman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

His story telling style and tone of voice of the master (knowledgeble and experienced surgeon) made the listener feel as if this is a face to face dialogue with him.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

not neccessary

Excellent. Intelligent.

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book. Dr. Goodman was a great speaker. I loved his pace and his ability to speak in layman's terms without it sounding like he was talking down to you and at the same time, use correct terminology for those who DO want the right words/vocabulary.

Some useful info but too long and too US specific

This was frustrating as had to wade through a lot of irrelevant and excessively detailed info to get the essential message. Also, it related to healthcare in the US. All this series of lectures are US based and some will travel better than others. This guy's voice was pretty grating to my ear too. Having said that, it has made me more determined to focus on better diet and more exercise.
