The End of Illness

David B. Agus, read by Holter Graham. Simon & Schuster Audio, unabridged, nine CDs, 10.5 hrs., $39.99 ISBN 978-1-4423-5117-2

In this day and age, everyone is searching for a quick fix to help lose weight, grow hair, prevent wrinkles, and live longer. Naturally, there’s no healthy quick fix to be found, but Agus—a doctor and modern rock star of science, according to GQ—has plenty of tips on how to get healthy, stay healthy, and live a long life in this informative guide. Holter Graham skillfully narrates the audio edition, turning in a down-to-earth delivery that speaks directly to listeners and a tone that is appropriately affirmative and reassuring. Graham’s reading never sounds condescending or judgmental—and listeners will appreciate this almost as much as the tips and guidance provided by Agus. A Free Press hardcover. (Jan.)
