The first audio biography of Dr. Anthony Fauci, the basketball loving kid from Brooklyn who became the most recognizable doctor in the world. 

New Yorker staff writer and author Michael Specter has known Dr. Anthony Fauci for more than three decades, starting with the AIDS crisis in the 1980s.  They’ve had many conversations over the years, but perhaps none as frank as those that became part of Specter’s audio biography FAUCI

In FAUCI, Specter weaves exclusive new interviews and archival audio of Dr. Fauci, his wife Christine Grady, R.N., Ph.D., and key colleagues and peers into a compelling portrait. Listeners will hear Dr. Fauci speak firsthand about the harassment and death threats he has received as a result of his leadership and about the stress of simultaneously combating the COVID-19 pandemic and an information war waged by his former boss, President Donald J. Trump and some members of Congress.  With its chorus of voices, archival recordings, and original score, Michael Specter's FAUCI audiobook brings the immediacy and energy of the best documentary podcasts to the audiobook format.

Specter traces the doctor’s life from his childhood as a basketball-loving kid in Brooklyn, through his leadership during the AIDS epidemic in the 1980s, to today, when the response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the future of viral research are shaping humanity for years to come.

With the FAUCI audiobook, Michael Specter has combined his unparalleled reporting with groundbreaking audiobook production to bring listeners the essential first biography of America’s doctor.


"A stirring, and very American, morality play." - New York Times

"Captures the listener's attention as effectively as a suspense novel." - AudioFile

"Fauci is unafraid to speak truth to power" - Good Morning America
