Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Bernie Siegel is a surgeon whose philosophy is that love, hope and respect prolong lives more consistently than medical science…The presentation is delightful. Siegel reads with a voice that laughs but also lets the listener believe it can cry. There’s obligatory elevator music at some transitions. Otherwise, the program is outstanding, with impeccable sound quality.”  AudioFile
