I am not a big fan of mysteries, perferring to read science or something productive and useful to me in some sense. This book was a terrific read. I did not figure out the plot until very late in the game. My wife cannot put it down. I have already purchased her other book on the reading list, Unspeakable, which is also very good.
I'm interested in epigenetics as a psychologist. I generally don't like author-narrators. His enthusiasm made up for the narrative quality and the content was superlative.
This was an excellent drive-time book. I did not particularly care that it was not rigorously impartial. I learned some things I did not know and found myself wanting to read many of his cited sources such as Hans Kung.
The book is an excellent exposition of science. I have a PhD and found her treatment of "research" to be excellent. But, like Ann Coulter in her audio books she will make an point well and then jar the reader (me) with a moronic flippancy. They are not mean but they still take away from the message. Thus, instead of really looking forward to my morning drive with the book. i sort of look forward.
I was very impressed with the quality of the presentation as well as with the narration. It helped clarify for me many issues of timing and planning that I had questions about. I especially enjoyed many of the pithy quotes which I am glad were leftt in. It made it less sterile and clinical. I am indebted to Audible for bringing it at such as reasonable price.
The book got a 4.75 rating so I thought it would be a good book on psychotherapy. Wow! Was I wrong. It was about religion. Had I read the reviews I would not have purchased the book.
