After retiring from a career as a neurosurgeon treating cancer patients, Henry Marsh had to confront his own cancer challenge. Here, he offers an engaging account of his adventures as a patient, his medical career, and the assorted challenges of old age. His clear and relaxed speaking tone, magnetic but never overwrought, is perfect for delivering these perspectives. His stage-worthy, upper-class British accent works well to deliver his personal disclosures and observations, and these vocal features invite listeners into his world without sounding self-absorbed. As a mature observer of the human condition, he has audible serenity that makes listeners curious about how his story ends. His asides and accessible comments about the body's systems and malfunctions offer a context that makes this audiobook as informative as it is absorbing.
