    Turbocharging the Brain

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, it was interesting and I caught several of the points.

    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The different affect of drugs on the brain of different people. How some drugs affect people with lower intelligence but do not of higher brain function. Some of the technical jargon was a little over my head or the actual drug names so that was less interesting.

    Did Mark Moran do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    n/a

    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, once I started it, it was best listened to in one sitting.
