When we recall a beloved childhood memory, stirring up feelings of nostalgia, are we incorporating the workings of the mind, or the brain? Unlocking these secrets makes for a complex topic, but Schwartz's down-to-earth writing makes it a delightful listening experience. Narrator Holly Cate's deep, polished voice suits the author's professional tone and expresses the humanity of her journey to reconcile age-old conflicts between neuroscience and psychoanalysis. Throughout the production, Cate successfully conveys Schwartz's dry wit with an upturned voice here, a dry tone there. Introducing research findings from a variety of sources, Cate does light but believable accents where appropriate, transitioning smoothly from tweedy Oxford English to the clipped Austrian accent of the father of psychoanalysis himself, Sigmund Freud. Schwartz uses the human experience to engage listeners on this unique journey into our inner selves. E.E.
