Many of the skills of a great lecturer translate well to the audiobook recording studio. But the two talents are not interchangeable. Cal Tech physics professor Leonard Mlodinow has worked alongside physics legends Richard Feynman and Stephen Hawking. He's written about neuroscience and popular culture and has an impressive portfolio as a Hollywood screenwriter. His clever wit and enthusiasm come across in his narration of his book about the unconscious workings of the human brain. But quite frequently, in his rapid-fire enthusiasm for his subject, Mlodinow's enunciation stumbles, and his strong Chicago accent becomes very noticeable. Nevertheless, his humor and profound insights are powerful enough that this reviewer was willing to overlook the flaws. In fact, I was so sad when the book ended that I immediately gave the entire book another complete listen. S.E.S. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2013]
