Audible Editor Reviews

This issue of Scientific American Mind features the cover story, "Burned Out", by Ulrich Kraft. Kraft documents the stress that comes with overworking and can often lead to serious physical harm. Five other thought-provoking articles are included with topics like the statistical advantages of older, sometimes slower, workers; a look at the staggering memory of Kim Peek; advances in epilepsy treatment; the world's most attractive android; and the benefits of creative thinking in child education. Narrated with an engaging presence that brings to life these complex ideas and an relaxed tone that allows for easy listening and cognition.
