HOW THE MIND CHANGED A Human History of Our Evolving Brain

by | Read by Joe Eyre

Contemporary Culture • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Hearing Joe Eyre narrate this dexterously written text by a neuroscientist is both intellectually stimulating and just plain fun. Eyre's smooth, lively voice impresses listeners with its authority, warmth, and enthusiasm for the topic. While listeners learn about both contemporary theories in neuroscience and the latest findings in paleoanthropology, the author also shares his unique insights on how depression, autism, and cultural diversity affected evolution. What Joe Eyre tells us so convincingly is that the brain is a marvelous organ and that what we think of as our mind, soul, or consciousness is really clusters of rapidly firing interconnected neurons generating our sense of self and our place in the world. This audiobook is diverting and visionary and offers listeners an opportunity to study the evolution of the human mind over the last seven million years.
