THE LEFT BRAIN SPEAKS, THE RIGHT BRAIN LAUGHS A Look at the Neuroscience of Innovation & Creativity in Art, Science & Life

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by James Patrick Cronin

Contemporary Culture • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

Narrator James Patrick Cronin brings out the humor and intrigue that are deftly interwoven with scientific data in this exploration of how the brain works. Cronin’s narration of this research is lively and informal. Whether delivering the personal stories of test subjects, the mind-boggling statistics and measurements of widths of synapses or axons, or the analysis of how the left and right side of the brain collaborate to capture the nuances of everyday logic and emotion, Cronin’s easy flow and lightness in tone make the information easy to follow and digest. The author’s irony is also evident in Cronin’s playful cheekiness, which effectively lends itself to the book’s mix of science and emotion and the argument that analysis, creativity, and emotion are deeply interrelated.
