  • "Fantastic Cosmic Stuff Well Explained"

    Overall

    This is one of the best books I ever bought. Cosmology like I never knew. Now when I see those Hubble telescope images I know what they are. This is a great book - give me more please - it is too short.

    We track these cosmic phenomena through their births, lives, and fiery deaths. The first article tells us about the appearance of the very first stars in the universe. Then, we will learn about the early days in the life of a star, as we track it's progression from dust to giant flaming ball of gas. Also, contrary to conventional wisdom, scientists have discovered that stars can, and often do, collide with each other.

  • "Interesting and Informative"

    Overall

    I'll be brief here. This is an interesting and logically explained discussion about time and relativity. Not in so much depth that I gave up but deep enough so as not to insult my intelligence. During a 90 minute country drive I listened to most of it - and my wife went to sleep after 30 minutes of it. Not a bad effort overall.

  • "A Painful Lesson"

    8 of 8 helpful votes

    This was my first foray into the world of periodical and I can only hope that they are not all like this. The content of the articles is good but the narrators are SO bad that it is painful to listen for more than a few minutes. monotone, monotone, monotone. An example of how bad it is, the narrator was reading the title of the next article before I realized that he had finished the first one.

    Studying how the mind and brain work sounds like it ought to be about as futile as trying to grab handfuls of air. Yet psychology, neuroscience and related fields have made amazing progress. This special issue of Scientific American reviews just a sliver of the discoveries that investigators from around the globe have made about the workings of our inner lives. The breadth of subjects tracks the vastness of thought.

Also, we'll learn about a mental breakdown that causes apathy so extreme it could become deadly, as well as Capgras syndrome, a perception disorder that causes people to think their loved ones have been replaced by extraterrestrial body doubles.

Then, an article that asks a provocative question - can we cure fear? Following that, it's an examination of anger -- should you control your emotions or let them rip? Next, it's a look at the persistence of myths -- and their connection to the brain's biological needs. Our fifth article seeks to explode one myth -- about the value of self-esteem.

    Reading the cracked brown fragments of fossils and sequences of DNA, scientists have found clues that the story of human origins has more convolutions than previously thought. The account of our shared human heritage now includes more controversial plot twists and mysteries. Was the remarkable seven-million-year-old skull found in July 2002 in Chad really one of our first forebears, or a distant dead-end cousin with precociously evolved features?
