“Apart from his clear-toned voice and flawless delivery, what makes this audiobook so seductive is the visceral way the author’s narration pulls in listeners and kindles interest in his thinking…His broad knowledge of the neurology of sound is also part of this pleasing presentation, but the most valuable part is his wisdom on connecting with others when speaking and listening. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”
