AN ELEGANT DEFENSE The Extraordinary New Science of the Immune System: A Tale in Four Lives

by | Read by Fred Sanders

Contemporary Culture • 12.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Fred Sanders's narration provides a comforting yet informed tone to Richtel's fascinating discussion of the human immune system, the biological realities of humanity, and why some suffer illness while others stay healthy despite their environments. Throughout, Richtel's audiobook is anchored by four compelling stories of individuals negotiating medical challenges, including a healthy, active woman hit with rheumatoid arthritis and a free-wheeling optimist facing lymphoma. The case scenarios provide listeners with a human perspective on the dynamic nature of the immune system, which Richtel describes as "the festival of life." Rooted in evidenced-based research, Richtel's compelling audiobook is enhanced by Sanders's inviting performance and is accessible to curious listeners.
