    Leonard Mlodinow, the best-selling author of The Drunkard’s Walk and coauthor of The Grand Design (with Stephen Hawking), gives us a startling and eye-opening examination of how the unconscious mind shapes our experience of the world and how, for instance, we often misperceive our relationships with family, friends, and business associates, misunderstand the reasons for our investment decisions, and misremember important events.

    If you could sum up Subliminal in three words, what would they be?

    Lots of examples.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Subliminal?

    Hard to nail down the most memorable moment. Collectively, the moments illustrated the authors intention of showing how important the subconscious is determining most of our decisions. Individually, the moments ran on from one to the next and on to the next and on to the next. There were so many references to tests and their results that I began to lose focus. Still, I was glad I listened to it. I'm better informed on how little control I have in my conscious thought.


    Have you listened to any of Leonard Mlodinow’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not listened to any other Mlodinow's books.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    My conscious thought is greatly influenced by my subconscious.

    Flight is the hilarious and tragic story of an orphaned Indian boy - "Zits" - who travels back and forth through time in a charged search for his true identity. With powerful, swift prose, Flight follows the troubled teenager as he learns that violence is not the answer.

    Any additional comments?

    I'm a sucker for time travel stories, and this one is just ok. Time travel appears to be no more than a vehicle for the author to weave a story with moral relevance. It does have entertainment value, historic references and is rather craftily written.

    However, what really disappointed me was the reading. Within a minute, I felt like I was listening to a stoner, or rather someone who was trying to speak like a stoner. The protagonist was not a stoner, and I actually found the delivery distracting. Other than that, he was articulate and clear, successfully assuming additional voices for other characters.
