THIS WILL MAKE YOU SMARTER New Scientific Concepts to Improve Your Thinking

by | Read by John Allen Nelson, Khristine Hvam

Personal Growth • 12.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

Finally, an audiobook that delivers on its promise! More than 150 scientists, technologists, and philosophers offer their answers to one question: “What scientific concept would improve everybody's cognitive tool kit?” While John Allen Nelson and Khristine Hvam deliver solid narrations, the dual format provides two challenges. First, the narration is split by gender, with Nelson voicing all of the male contributors and Hvam, the females. Second, the production proceeds quickly—with the end of an essay leading immediately to the title of the next. Because the contributors are predominantly male, listeners have to play close attention for these transitions. Those who do, however, will be rewarded with a diversity of thought. Fans of TED Talks will find much to appreciate in this collection. A.S. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2013]
