Publisher's Summary

In this issue:

"Ascent of Mammals": Recent fossil discoveries reveal that evolution began laying the groundwork for their rise to world domination long before the dinosaur-killing asteroid cleared the playing field.

"Stellar Fireworks": Every year thousands of exploding stars appear in a bizarre assortment of forms. Astronomers want to know what makes them go boom.

"Preventing Tomorrow's Climate Wars": The U.S. military is taking steps to limit the chance that worsening droughts, rising sea and melting Arctic ice will hasten uprisings that threaten national interests.

"The Fog of Agent Orange": Vietnam insists that children are suffering today from the lingering effects of the infamous defoliant sprayed by U.S. forces decades ago. Scientists are undecided.

      "Amazon censors"
      What disappointed you about Scientific American, June 2016?

      The articles have been censored ...
      for example this article was left out.
      ."Major Cell Phone Radiation Study Reignites Cancer Questions"
      "Exposure to radio-frequency radiation linked to tumor formation in rats"
      .


      What do you think your next listen will be?

      I guess I won't subscribe to any magazines ... from audible... or amazon.


      Which scene was your favorite?

      The favorites were left out of the audio version.


      What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

      Anger at Amazon's censoring out important information..

      Of course.. maybe there's more to the story.. and it isn't Amazon .. I don't know..


      Any additional comments?

      Scientific American's reputation as an interesting magazine is tarnished by censoring... I was beginning to think they were really boring. Neither May 2016 nor June 2016 had these articles in the audible's Scientific American subscription :
      "Major Cell Phone Radiation Study Reignites Cancer Questions"
      ""Exposure to radio-frequency radiation linked to tumor formation in rats"
      By Dina Fine Maron on May 27, 2016
      Shame on you Amazon
      I guess Amazon will probably censor out this review..
