Using examples from such diverse fields as medicine, the military, and the economics of developing countries, British economist Harford extols the virtues of trial and error on the path to success. Narrator Jonathan Keeble provides a strong delivery of Harford’s thesis with his British accent, intonation, and sense of timing. The one exception is that the examples that support Harford’s thesis come from around the world, and Keeble attempts to provide appropriate accents for each one. His British, Irish, and Scots accents are spot-on, but the others are exaggerated and except for the American accents tend to sound mostly Eastern European. Nonetheless, Keeble succeeds in advancing Harford’s points on the importance of adaptation in a way that is illuminating and entertaining.
