Physician and researcher Matt McCarthy narrates his audiobook with earnestness and clarity. His story recounts the challenges of getting approval to develop a new antibiotic to stop the spread of a resistant bacteria strain. As background, he also discusses the history of medical research involving human subjects, describes how harmful practices have been corrected through regulation, and updates listeners on cutting-edge areas of current research, including the splicing of genes to address congenital problems. Throughout, McCarthy describes his interactions with patients: some encouraging, some indifferent, others heartbreaking. This audiobook is an invaluable experience for listeners seeking to understand the big questions about human life and medical ethics. McCarthy's voice is humble yet passionate as he delivers a fascinating discussion. S.P.C. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2019]
