Audible Editor Reviews

iMinds has helpfully divided its audio encyclopedia into broad categories like Arts, History, Pop Culture, etc., so listeners know how the content of each eight-minute learning segment will be oriented. In this volume of Specialist, the learning company has selected topics that fall under the topical umbrella of Science & Nature. The entrancing male and female narrators on these tracks explore such celestial phenomena as meteorites and the Aurora Borealis, as well as more Earth-bound topics such as evolution and wind power. Each listener-friendly segment is brief (around eight minutes), potent, and penetrating due to the iMinds company's unbeatable formula of careful research and superb production value.

    Not much here but music and out dated information. It didn't offer new information and was not able to hold my attention.
