THE INTELLECTUAL DEVOTIONAL: MODERN CULTURE Revive Your Mind, Complete Your Education, and Converse Confidently with the Culturati

by | Read by Helen Litchfield, Oliver Wyman

Personal Growth • 20 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

Using a framework borrowed from religion, the devotional, this collection of 365 short intellectual topics is intended to refresh the mind daily for a full year. Most listeners will enjoy multiple segments at a sitting because they become addictive once their richness becomes obvious. The authors draw from seven fields of knowledge—history, literature, philosophy, mathematics and science, religion, fine arts, and music—and their choices are impressive for their range and depth. The two narrators, Helen Litchfield and Oliver Wyman, could not be better suited to this endeavor. As they mostly alternate entire segments, the contrast of tone and personality will keep listeners' attention stirred but not shaken. Their performances are so sturdy and appropriate that most people won't even be aware of the extraordinary talent and professionalism they embody.
