Not as good as the first

Beautiful narration, a fun listen and thought provoking ideas
This is my second Dan Ariely book, I’m not sure why people said it wasn’t as good as predictably irrational and that the ideas were the same. They weren’t, this book was different, it followed the same approach but offered new areas in which it was questioning.
I like the wit and humor that goes into the style of his writing when trying to talk about scientific concepts..
I also love the voice of the narrator, he seems like Sir David Attenborough’s brother ...
I have a few more books I also bought and am looking forward to listening to them.
Keep up the awesome work Dan.. keep using this awesome narrator.. and thank you audible for such a good app :)
Lots of love from dubai :)
