SENTIENT How Animals Illuminate the Wonder of Our Human Senses

by | Read by Joan Walker

Contemporary Culture • 10.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

This fantastic audiobook about the neuroscience of sense perception in animals is an engaging listen. Narrator Joan Walker makes it exciting to follow the author's many journeys into extreme worlds, such as the planet's deepest sea trenches, where the four-eyed spookfish sees in the dark. In each chapter the author describes a different animal's super sense. Memorable examples include the bloodhound's ability to smell, the owl's sharp hearing, and the star-nosed mole's ultra-refined touch. Walker sounds like a scientist, and her performance reflects the author's energetic passion to explore lesser-known senses like balance, color, time, and direction. Each sense specialty the author discusses opens up interesting questions about human perception. This audiobook is exciting science listening for the truly curious.
