Best deal of the iMind series

The Genius has Generalist 1 to 6 in it. So it is the best deal of the iMind series. I love the narrators, the little interesting bits of info they give, the music adding suspense that they sometimes have and I must be a major geek but this audio book makes me happy.

Not that Good

I was a bit disappointed in many of the topics chosen for this volume. Most were things I already knew. The ones I didn't know were things that were just sort of silly and probably didn't need to know anyway.
