Cassandra Campbell's melodic voice adds interest to this important book about the brain and memory. Author Sue Halpern used herself as a guinea pig, undergoing a battery of tests in order to report on the field of brain research—the doctors, subjects, and data. By varying her tone and pacing, Campbell adds texture to the reportage, even managing to make long descriptions of the tests themselves clear and involving for the listener. (Or, at least, fairly involving.) When reading the personal sections of the narrative, she is a fine stand-in for the author, giving voice with audible humor and empathy to listeners' inevitable worries about the state of their own brains.
