Grover Gardner's distinct voice and pleasant pace add enough color to make this fluffy text jump out and grab you with relevance. Science author Shermer is a TV show host and skeptic known for his open-mindedness. A good example of his approach is the chapter on hypnosis, a fuzzy borderline phenomenon not explainable by our present knowledge of the brain or its behavior: not science, but upon close examination, not nonsense either. Well-narrated nonfiction like this stimulates audio listeners to explore alternative ideas in a format more interesting than the printed version. J.A.H.
