WANTING The Power of Mimetic Desire in Everyday Life

by | Read by Luke Burgis, Sean Patrick Hopkins

Business & Finance • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

The author's narration of the introduction to this philosophical audiobook sets a somber tone before Sean Patrick Hopkins delivers the remainder with his usual vocal charm. After hearing the author sound so serious, listeners will find that Hopkins's friendly performance makes the material seem more accessible. Both men are pitch-perfect interpreters of this complex writing, which aims to give listeners more control over their wants and desires by explaining how people are wired to reflexively internalize the needs and preferences of others. Going beyond pop psychology, the audiobook addresses broader questions about the human condition--how we decide what is essential, how to respond optimally to the choices we face in life. Listeners will enjoy this spellbinding meditation on questions central to human existence. T.W. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2021]
