Not very accurate
I understand that the book is a crash course but some of the science was wrong. Peptic ulcer disease is now known to be caused by a bacterial infection rather than just stress but this was not mentioned.

Overall, great, not excellent.
Even though it was read/narrated by a doctor, I did not find it make a difference compared to it being narrated by someone without medical background. Some issues (screening/prevention) were a bit controversial (primary/secondary/tertiary prevention) and I do not find it necessary to spend so much time on the alternative to medicine aka alternative medicine. Thank You.
