WAYFINDING The Science and Mystery of How Humans Navigate the World

by | Read by Teri Schnaubelt

Contemporary Culture • 11.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Narrator Teri Schnaubelt skillfully guides listeners through a fascinating story of anthropology, geography, neuroscience, and more. Throughout history and until very recently, humans traveled great distances without the aid of GPS technologies. In fact, the brain's hippocampus is enlarged in people with keen geographic knowledge and wayfinding abilities. So what happens now that the average person needs their smartphone to get to a new destination? Schnaubelt brings a clear and energetic voice to this audiobook, which explores the human brain, examines our relationship with navigational technology, and describes the author's travels across continents to find communities with rich wayfinding cultures. Whether recounting the author's journey or covering the denser science-focused chapters, Schnaubelt maintains a brisk yet easy-to-follow pace that is sure to keep listeners engaged.
