An audiobook about paper? Will the contradictions never cease? Actually, in classical times, paper was seen as a threat to developing memory and mental processes. In the Middle Ages, paper saved Western culture. Now we see it as old and wasteful, and are hoping at some point to become a "paperless society." This audiobook fills in the fascinating blanks and shows us how paper shaped the modern world. Andrew Garman uses his deep, authoritative voice to guide us on this historical tour, and he makes it worth the trip. While he does need to vary his voice a bit more, he pauses to let the ideas sink in, and he knows where to emphasize certain facts that are key to the book. This is good history and a great story.
