If you're already familiar with Picasso's work and want to learn about his sex life and relationships, this is a fun, short listen. I was hoping to learn more about his art and professional life.
Luckily, it was short.
The author drones on and on about every minute detail related to every single aspect of reading a book. I couldn't finish it.
I read this book for the information, not to be entertained. The knowledge of how our brains work is extremely valuable and potentially life changing. Unfortunately, the author chose to bury that information in lengthy descriptions of all of the physiological and chemical processes that determine how brains work, as well as in vignettes that provided examples.The stories actually would have been helpful if they were shorter.The scientific stuff should have been moved to an appendix. This would have been an awesome book if it was half as long.
The narrator's tone was dramatic and serious. His voice was better suited to Masterpiece Theater than to the subject matter at hand.
Sort of. I'll probably have to buy the hard copy and highlight the key points so I can refer back to them and keep them fresh in my mind.
