X + Y A Mathematician's Manifesto for Rethinking Gender

by | Read by Moira Quirk

Contemporary Culture • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Moira Quirk narrates this fascinating examination of society, gender, and mathematics. That may initially seem like an odd trio, but listeners quickly discover how author Eugenia Cheng's mathematical specialty, called category theory, could break down barriers imposed by gender. Quirk immediately draws in listeners with an energetic and magnetic voice that makes what could be intimidating subject matter sound downright accessible--and entertaining. Quirk's pacing and rhythm strike a good balance between allowing listeners to digest information and still delivering a brisk narrative that doesn't get bogged down by information overload. In short, this audiobook is essential listening for anyone--mathematically inclined or not--who is interested in a unique point of view that convincingly challenges society's long-standing gender biases.
