by | Read by Michael David Axtell

Contemporary Culture • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Narrator Michael David Axtell brings energetic briskness to this exploration of how streaks are built across a range of industries from gambling to basketball. He is confident and interesting as he leads us through various case studies on how people come to recognize and maximize popular phenomena ahead of the curve. Axtell's style is well suited to this heavily researched title, written by a journalist. He juggles the facts, figures, and details of professionals who range from tech whizzes to world-renowned athletes. Sweeping listeners along, he delivers this rapid-fire look at modern life and the singular figures who have maximized trends into millions and fame. Overall, he presents people and ideas with an engaging intensity that turns history into interesting stories. M.R. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2020]
