Contemporary Culture • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

Expect to enjoy a literary investigation into the many decisions we make day-to-day, using examples from rescue workers, poker players, investment moguls, and health-care professionals. Some of the processes can be related to certain brain areas, while others cannot. The key information lies in how we can influence our choices to have better outcomes. American narrator David Colacci quotes Plato inexplicably with a British accent and recites other quoted material with a growl or faux woman's voice. His attempts to make heavy ideas lighter work to a degree, but his speaking volume takes wide swings from strong to nearly inaudible, causing syllables and whole words to disappear at the nadirs. Colacci's narrative technique of modulating volume to sound more conversational loses information and becomes a distraction. J.A.H. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2009]
