The liberal media machine did everything they could to keep this book out of your hands. Now, finally, Dangerous, the most controversial book of the decade, is tearing down safe spaces everywhere.

I’m a hetero male, three kids, wife, work in a mainstream medical field, bought up in a conservative left wing (I know paradox, right?) Australian family and found this book and the reading of it to be the antithesis I needed to keep my sanity in the predictable socialist world we now find ourselves in. Thank goodness for people like Milo who can mix intellectual prowess with humour and cutting insight. Listen, read, borrow or get a pirated copy (I doubt the author would mind) just get you hands on it and spread the word. Now watch below for the magnificent, whining comments that are sure to follow this review.

  • The Real Doctor Will See You Shortly

In medical school, Matt McCarthy dreamed of being a different kind of doctor - the sort of mythical, unflappable physician who could reach unreachable patients. But when a new admission to the critical care unit almost died his first night on call, he found himself scrambling. Visions of mastery quickly gave way to hopes of simply surviving hospital life, where confidence was hard to come by and no amount of med school training could dispel the terror of facing actual patients.

A memoir full of take aways and life lessons. Highly recommend to lay persons but especially healthcare professionals or prospective students in the health sciences.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The only thing I'd change would be either my IQ or just my ability to hold 4-5 different concepts in my head at once waiting for the "ah ha" moment. I've listened to Bill Bryson's "A Short History" with himself narrating and it was fantastic, and I've listened to "Guns, Germs and Steel", likewise fantastic - could follow both no problem. I know this is a brilliant piece of writing but some of the explanations where too confusing to follow in audiobook format. Made it halfway and returned to Audible.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Yes.

If this book were a film would you go see it?

Documentary - yes.

Any additional comments?

It may just be me!
