I used this to augment my Open University course, A218 'Medicine and Society in Europe.' It was included in the online study planner but having it on CD meant I could listen away from a PC and load the episodes to my iPod.
Cunningham hits the right balance between providing useful important information and entertaining listening.
He narrates it very well and is accompanied by actors who bring quotes to life.
For anyone interested in the History of Medicine since Hippocrates and Galen this is a must-have resource.
Brilliant!

I first heard this serialised on Radio Four but missed a couple of episodes. Although I have nothing to do with the medical world, I found this absolutely fascinating. I am now catching up on the bits I missed and relistening to the rest. If you like history and social history in particular, this is well worth buying - very easy listening (and read so well by the author, who has the perfect radio voice). I cannot recommend this highly enough to both medical and non-medical listeners - I gave it to several people (some medical, some not) for Christmas and they all loved it too...Recommend you listen in 15 minutes chunks, as with the Radio Four series...Just brilliant. Savour it.

Interesting and enjoyable. My wife, a former nurse, has been fascinated by the detail and listened to it for long stretches at a time.
