With his intimate vocal tone and creative phrasing, Fred Sanders narrates this audiobook as though he were solving a series of fascinating mysteries. His performance creates an ongoing sense of anticipation that, along with the author's lively writing, makes this a thoroughly enjoyable listening experience. The author describes the lives of well-known achievers--da Vinci, Beethoven, Marie Curie, Picasso, J.K. Rowling, and Steve Jobs, to name a few--and extracts 14 traits they share to varying degrees. He dispels popular myths about geniuses, saying that they are often rebellious workaholics, social misfits, and obsessed problem solvers whose greatest achievements occur not suddenly, but after years of hard work. This is a winning combination of stories and inspiration that Sanders's performance makes even more engaging. T.W. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2020]
