PENDULUM How Past Generations Shape Our Present and Predict Our Future

by | Read by Roy H. Williams, Michael R. Drew

Contemporary Culture • 5.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

The authors examine 3,000 years of history to show that values shift between emphasizing the individual and the collective around every 40 years. The authors deliver their own work in an engaging manner. Williams is the more natural narrator, adding changes in tone and volume to make his point, and Drew adds a counterpoint to Williams's more impassioned reading. As they alternate between, and even within, examples, the frequent changes in narrator keep listeners on their toes. A downloadable PDF of figures and graphs gives a visual representation of the authors' thesis and time lines. However, the figures aren't referenced in the reading, so it can be difficult to know when to refer to the relevant image. E.N. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2013]
