Would you try another book written by Lisa Sanders or narrated by Lisa Sanders?

Possibly

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

the patient stories and diseases were incredibly interesting but the point to telling each of those stories was a bit bland.

Was Every Patient Tells a Story worth the listening time?

It was okay, i didnt mind.

In Amy Poehler's highly anticipated first book, Yes Please, she offers up a big juicy stew of personal stories, funny bits on sex and love and friendship and parenthood and real life advice (some useful, some not so much).Powered by Amy's charming and hilarious, biting yet wise voice, and including a star-studded guest list of vocal appearances.

Once in a generation a woman comes along who changes everything. Tina Fey is not that woman, but she met that woman once and acted weird around her.

Before 30 Rock, Mean Girls, and 'Sarah Palin', Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true.

I couldn't finish this book. The stories are random with no point. They were not funny and they didn't keep you hooked.
