Audible Editor Reviews

This riveting issue of Scientific American Mind opens with a thorough and engrossing cover story about the psychology of consumption in our modern society. In six more articles, this edition of the popular science magazine explores topics including brain maturity in teenagers, research into the development of prosthetic brain implants, and the use of lithium as a potential unlikely treatment for Alzheimer’s.

Voice actor Mark Moran’s skillful narration renders this audiobook’s complex content eminently accessible for a wide range of listeners, and his clear, distinct enunciation is compelling and easy to follow.
