    Brilliantly exploring today's cutting edge brain research, Mind Wide Open allows readers to understand themselves and the people in their lives as never before. Using a mix of experiential reportage, personal storytelling, and fresh scientific discovery, Steven Johnson describes how the brain works and how its systems connect to the day-to-day realities of individual lives.

    Chris says: "Fascinating, fascinating... but short"
    "Incredible!"
    Overall

    This is a must-read book for anyone interested in exploring current understandings of the human brain. It is informative without being overly technical. Perfect for laymen like me.

    I have found myself talking about this book to just about everyone I know. for my middle-school to high school kids and spouse, it has been a great platform for discussions that have led us to ask more questions and Google the answers. Indeed, I have found myself growing more and more enthusiastic about this subject matter and that enthusiasm has rubbed off on my family members. Anything that inspires others to learn more is worthy of much adulation.

    Mr. Johnson is to be commended for writing such an amazing work. And yes. I will be listening to it again.

    Combining elements of Rocket Boys and Elegant Universe, Time Traveler follows Mallett's discovery of Einstein's work on space-time, his study of Godel's work on a solution of Einstein's equation that might allow for time travel, and his own research in theoretical physics spanning 30 years that culminated in his recent discovery of the effects of circulating laser light and its application to time travel.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely. Anything that transcends the boundaries between sci-fi and reality always thrills me.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    There were no "characters" per se.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. I took the time to listen in chunks so I could digest the content.


    Any additional comments?

    Let's face it, physicists don't always make their work interesting to the common person. In this case, Ronald Mallett provided a great story with compelling personal experiences to relate a mathematical breakthrough. It captured my imagination.
