Terrible book. Hard to follow and learnt nothing

sounded like the narrator just read line for line from a textbook and didnt understand any of it so couldnt deliver it in an easy to understand way or conceptualise anything. Hard to follow moving between topics, all sounded like it ran into each other and i had trouble following. It was so oversimplified that it was like glossing over concepts and like teaching me how to spell 3 letter words or it threw out complex words and concepts without explaining them so if you knew it you learnt nothing and if you didnt you also learnt nothing. Hated it so much i cant continue past the first hour. Im a junior doctor and dont think it is at all detailed enough to aid studying for usmle which they say and would be completely unintelligible and impossible to even understand for anyone without medical training who was just curious about learning medical school things which they also say its good for.

Read by a computer,

Good content but this book is narrated by a computer, imagine Siri reading a book. It's pretty distracting because not all of the pronunciations are correct. I would enjoy this book more if it was narrated by an actual human or if they took care to make sure that all pronunciations were correct

Constant flow of info

This book was a good review of physiology and anatomy. If those subjects have not been previously studied, at least to some extent, I think a person might be lost and not get enough out of it.
The chapters are simply a presentation of information, with no story or prose. Each chapter ends with a quiz, which further reinforces info retention. The book ends with a long quiz of all info presented.
The text includes some anatomy, the systems of the body, potential illnesses and diseases, with (their old school ideas of) causes and solutions. Often it is stated that "the cause is unknown" or there is "no cure". The information seems to be based on traditional Western medicine, from several years ago. It does not include info from the tens of thousands of studies completed in the last few years. Science had made huge advances, or confirmed what was postulated many decades ago. That info is not yet taught in U.S. medical schools, and is not included here. For the most part, this text does not include the huge impact of nutrition and lifestyle upon health, although it does in some cases. This text does not discuss or acknowledge the impact of gut health and the importance of the microbiome upon all body systems and their components.
I will listen to this again at a later date, for it is a good, very straightforward review of physiology. I do recommend it, for that purpose. I do not recommend it as a stand alone physiology course.
I listened at 1.15x speed, which worked well for me.

It mixes up afferent with efferent arterioles.

Thus far I like it, however there are some mistakes. Always cross reference to make sure you memorize correct information.

This is a very good refresher. Please go back and fix several of the glitches in quizzes.

Monotone voice,

The narrator is speaking in monotone. I had a difficult time paying attention. I had to look for another book.

Read by a computer? Slightly odd....

Not well read- read by something automated. Chapters aren’t titled on the app so you have you blindly go through the chapters....

Too basic

Content is too basic for medical school level, doesn’t go into depth into core human physiology. The track also sounds like it is a computer rather than a human narrator.
