British radio personalities Adam Rutherford and Hannah Fry share duties equally in this brisk and irreverent explanation of "nearly everything" in math and science--which turns out to be quite a lot. The pair's accents and approach may take some getting used to, as their style has a distinct echo of the British music hall. But they are masters of the back-and-forth, and their very listenable segments are also enlightening and painlessly instructional. The focus is on human perception--for instance, the performance of the human eye and how it-- and we--process events around us. Easy to follow but factually reliable, this instruction is a bit tart and refreshingly light. D.A.W. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2022]
