    Story
    "One of my recent favorites"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Whistling Vivaldi to be better than the print version?

    Some books in this genre are not easily adapted to the audio format because of the need to look at charts/graphs or other visual information, but this book works well as an audio book!


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    This book is incredibly well–written and compelling. The author effectively communicates his ideas/the results of his research (macro) by providing explanations at the individual (micro) level.
