I am self-absorbed and...oh wait this isn't an e-mail to my therapist. hehe I love the Science and Technology section here, it's my favorite. I hope to write my reviews at least well enough to peek the interest of a few listeners to the point where they will shift their tastes more toward educational literature, knowing that(after receiving some insight from me) they can be just as entertaining, if not more so than mainstream fiction
Scientific American has in the not so recent past been one of my favorite magazines, however in recent years due to the literary simpification of the publication to suit a wider more diverse audience I have strayed from its pages.
This audible.com delight will be refreshing as well as nostalgic for those readers who can enjoy quantum particle matters, and/or feel the same way about Scientific American as I have expressed in the first Paragraph.
I've listened to articles on the same subject from both Science News (SN) and Scientific American (SA)from Audio Books. My experience is that articles come out a month or two earlier on SA, and in greater depth than SN articles. On the other hand SN covers a greater breadth of subjects. If you've ever read a paper SA magazine you know how integral the pictures, illustrations and graphs are for conveying the full content of an article. A picture is worth a thousand words, and the audio version of SA doesn't acknowledge they even exist. The SN articles are at the right level of detail for the audio format.
