Listeners will have to shift to a more intense mental gear to take in the full measure of this nuanced and thoughtful audiobook. The Canadian philosophy professor and popular author/speaker examines risk as it figures in both individual decisions and in the societal aggregate--such areas as public health policy (masks and vaccines), mass transportation (air travel safety), and actuarial calculations (for pricing insurance premiums). Narrator Braden Wright's performance captures the youthful freshness of this author's writing and speaking style; it's lighthearted and self-effacing in tone, pleasantly precise in enunciation, and attentive to ideational trajectory. Wright's clear, masculine voice and lyrical phrasing make the author's impressive thinking accessible, once listeners decide to strap in and connect with the density of his ideas.
