BALANCE A Dizzying Journey Through the Science of Our Most Delicate Sense

by | Read by Wendy Tremont King

Contemporary Culture • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

Wendy Tremont King give a serviceable narration of Svec's well-researched and well-written look at the human mechanisms that allow us to stand upright and perceive our place in this three-dimensional universe, and that also can cause us to be afflicted by vertigo and nausea. King seems to handle the scientific terminology with ease. The audiobook delves into little-known research on a you-are-there human scale; we follow the author as she visits testing laboratories and academic research centers. Why do we get seasick, for example. What do astronauts feel in weightless environments? How is it that amusement park rides make youngsters delighted and adults sick to their stomachs? The answers are here. D.R.W. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2018]
