Narrator Jonathan Yen brings an expressive reading to a scientific subject that remains an elusive concept, difficult for many of us to verbalize: flavor. Scientific works can sometimes prove difficult to follow in the audio format, but Yen's enthusiasm helps to keep the information fresh as he describes the intricacies of cutting-edge research into flavor, including such contributing factors as olfaction and the way individuals perceive flavor. Yen's use of accents for some of the scientists consulted throughout the book seems like a superfluous touch, occasionally distracting from the material at hand. Overall, however, listeners are sure to learn some fascinating facts and pick up some tips for how to enhance flavors in their everyday lives. S.E.G.
