VOTED ONE OF THE BEST AUDIOBOOKS of 2022 by Barnes & Noble (remember bookstores??)And BEST OF AUDIBLE 2022

From AUDIOFILE: This is the second of Mukherjee's audiobooks that Dennis Boutsikaris has narrated, after 2017's THE GENE. In this expansive history of the researchers who unlocked the mysteries of the cell, Boutsikaris demonstrates again the importance of an experienced narrator in shaping a complex narrative. Using many of his skills as a narrator of bestselling thrillers, Boutsikaris shades a syllable here, adds a degree of emphasis there, heightening and bringing dramatic tension to a history that is already skillfully told and highly accessible but, at times, unavoidably dense. This is a narrative to digest slowly, step by step. The chapters are conveniently brief, and it's no effort to listen to such an adept performer a second, even a third, time.

FROM AUDIBLE BEST OF 2022: "In a pitch-perfect performance from narrator Dennis Boutsikaris, The Song of the Cell is an ambitious blend of medical history, biology, and memoir that explains how the discovery of cells transformed our understanding of the body, a breakthrough with particular resonance in the context of Covid." Hear me say names like Antonie van Leeuwenhoek. Don't try this at home.
