Psychologist Kahneman’s book examines our mental processes, with all the errors and foibles they’re prey to. Narrator Patrick Egan has a likable voice, and he reads with energy at an excellent pace, modulating intonation and matching sense to expression skillfully. He makes the sometimes complex text clear and holds the listener’s attention. But his precise articulation and almost exaggerated clarity often make his reading seem stiff and somewhat uncomfortable, more like a speech than a conversation. Though figures and charts referred to can be viewed as a PDF, frequent references to them may frustrate listeners, especially while in the middle of a task or driving. Still, this is an important book, and the reading itself is serviceable. W.M. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2012]
