Narrator Mike Chamberlain's optimistic voice keeps the tone light in this extensive look at how good thinking depends on the interplay of many factors outside our individual brains. His flawless phrasing and enunciation give this audio appealing clarity and impact. Written with a breezy tone by two academic psychologists, the audiobook covers the way we acquire a broad range of knowledge--from an understanding of modern-day machines to opinions on hot political issues like global warming or taxation policy. The authors effectively argue for humility regarding what we really know, and more appreciation for the ways the outside world, especially other people, can help us understand the world and make it better. Their political and philosophical sensibilities offset the cognitive science details to make this a powerful guide to becoming better citizens as well as thinkers.
