This special edition of Scientific American provides an inside look at the brain through eight thought-provoking articles. The cover article examines the special "genius" that accompanies autism and other brain disorders. This issue's other topics include brain wiring versus freewill, compulsive television addictions, stress, anxiety, and the science behind the art of persuasion. Lucky for us, you don't need to be a brainiac to follow the narration. This performer uses relaxed pacing, and his tone is straightforward but engaged. Meanwhile, his enunciation tackles scientific vocabulary with ease.

though nearly all of this material was better covered in DISCOVER: THE BRAIN in their fall edition. I wish audible carried DISCOVER, as it seems to me the more-informative and better-written magazine.
