The five stars could have been for the narration alone. Overall a great story not the best one in the series but well worth a read/listen.
This book was a poorly written version of 59 seconds. Every item they discuss was based on that book, they add in an attempt at "clever" comments that fail every time. If you want the exact same information only presented better and with the actual experimenters names and better explanations I suggest Richard Wiseman's 59 seconds.
This is the abridged version of the story and it moves at a much faster pace because of it. There is little time for any sort of character development and as a result the characters are of little to no interest. The plot however is well thought out and very entertaining.
I enjoyed the witticisms of Justin Halpern's father, and overall it is a nice story. The narrator decided to use voices for each character which is alright at first to distinguish when the father and son are talking but then goes too far. He starts using voices for children and later a female character and is just ridiculous and it becomes just disruptive to the story.
