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

  • "Beautiful Strangeness Of the Quantum!"

    Overall

    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.

  • "Great weekly news magazine"

    40 of 41 helpful votes

    I first started reading Science News in 1966, and it has never disappointed me. The articles cover every scientific discipline and are presented in an easy to understand vocabulary and format for the lay person, yet there is enough detail, including identification of the source material, to locate the original article or study. Highly recommended if you have a broad interest in science.

    The cover story in this issue explains how creativity and brilliance arises in all of us. Then, we'll take a look at the latest theories behind the experience commonly known as 'deja-vu'. 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become deadly, as well as Capgras syndrome, a perception disorder that causes people to think their loved ones have been replaced by extraterrestrial body doubles.

    The cover story reveals how painful, long-term memories might actually be erased with the use of drugs at just the right moment. 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?
