Jeff Deutsch's thoughtful and thorough dissertation on bookstores delves deeply into the subject, presenting listeners with a history of the book itself. While delivering the author's musings about the changes in the world of bookselling--from the neighborhood store to Amazon--narrator Ako Mitchell's calm and measured voice transmits his serious attitude toward the changes in publishing. It is this gravity that allows his audience to concentrate and enjoy the discussion. Overall, this is a careful and elaborate presentation on the value of browsing, which demonstrates the importance of bookstores to the communities lucky enough to have them. Deutsch's views on the importance of reading will be appreciated by those who concur. E.J.F. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2022]
