THE LUCIFER EFFECT Understanding How Good People Turn Evil

by | Read by Kevin Foley

Contemporary Culture • 27 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

Kevin Foley’s deep, gentle voice guides listeners through Zimbardo’s complicated assessment of the role of institutional forces upon the individual. Starting with his infamous Stanford Prison Experiment and ending with a discussion of the Abu Ghraib Prison scandal, Zimbardo illustrates the complex forces at work that can manipulate good people into making poor, and even horrific, decisions. Foley consistently maintains listeners’ attention with inflection and emphasis, all the while keeping to a good narrative pace despite the sometimes complex information being delivered. He provides speaking voices that do not have much range, but his lack of differentiation does not detract overall. L.E. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2011]
