Audible Editor Reviews

This intriguing edition of Scientific American Mind contains articles covering a wide variety of topics, beginning with a cover piece about the hallmarks of good leadership. Subsequent articles address a range of issues including rising college dropout rates, the effect of language on decision-making, and the possibility that researchers might manage to create a predictive model for certain types of violent public incidents. This fascinating recording also contains an article about prosopagnosia - the inability to recognize people based on their facial features - as well as an article about social and economic cognitive decision-making.

Narrator Mark Moran guides listeners effortlessly through this absorbing audiobook, his clear enunciation and careful pacing effortlessly illuminating the dense content of these thought-provoking articles.
