I felt the narration of this most interesting book was excellent. While much of the content demonstrated man's inhumanity to man there were also examples of wonderful sacrifice, particularly that of Father Damian. If I have a complaint it is that I felt at times Jennifer overstated her case. Lobotomy was a very dark page in medical history but I wonder whether some of the proponents were not simply children of their age rather than basically evil people. One remembers the quote from "Woodbine Willie" of First World War fame, "I'm a man and man's a mixture right down from his very birth. For part of him comes from heaven and part of him comes from earth".

I really enjoyed this book and found it full of useful information. Mark, or whoever was the reader, spoke with great clarity and with compelling diction. Much of the content was not new but there were also new insights which I appreciated.
