Everyone can relate to this book because it tries to explain the activity of the brain in our moment-to-moment existence. You may find yourself paying closer attention to everything you do (and especially everything you think) while absorbing the author's explanation of how you are doing it. Hawkins' theory is insightful, convincing, and even surprising. Just as remarkable, it is easily understood by persons with little background in the field. The book is also well narrated, though if your player allows you to, I personally recommend playback at 110% speed to make the voice sound more normal (I think Audible purposely reduced the speed to make the book more digestible). The author went to some lengths to make the book as enjoyable as possible for Audible customers, narrating the preface himself and verbally explaining some of the book's illustrations. These illustrations are available for download at Audible from the book's summary page and I highly recommend that you take advantage of them. Don't let the plain title and cover art deter you--this is one of the best nonfiction books at Audible.com.
