Patrick Lawlor tackles this study in behavioral economics with ease. His upbeat narration keeps the pace moving through Cowen's extensive explanations and arguments regarding the methods of mental ordering and data organization used by autistic people and what they can tell us about how people in general use information. Since autism is a thorny topic and Cowen argues that most of what most people know about it is incorrect, there are many quotations—which Lawlor endeavors to set apart by adopting an appropriate accent and tone for the original writer. While this approach successfully differentiates the quotations, the transitions are a little abrupt, though this is a minor distraction. Overall, Lawlor’s clear delivery and well-timed pauses keep his fast-paced narration manageable. E.N. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2010]
