Would you consider the audio edition of The New Analog to be better than the print version?
I found the opening paragraph (possibly the forward?) to be hilariously ironic, since I was listening to it as a digital audio file, instead of reading it as a paper book. I think there are definitely strong academic benefits to reading books with one's eyes, over listening to them. However, after more than forty years of avid reading with my eyes, they are growing weak. I find it very difficult to read in anything less than bright light, even with my strong reading glasses. And, now that I am listening when I commute and when I work in the kitchen and such, I am "reading" a lot more than I ever did visually. Audio is better for me. I would not go so far as to say it is necessarily better for everyone. And I definitely feel that people who can still see well, especially the young and uneducated, will benefit greatly from actually reading words with their eyes, whether on paper or a screen.
What about Damon Krukowski’s performance did you like?
I like his voice, but I particularly like that the same brilliant person who organized and wrote diown this information was also the voice reading it. When the author is capable of good narration, I definitely like to hear the author read her or his own work.
Any additional comments?
I thought that i knew a fair amount about digital and audio recording, having been a hobbyist in this area most of my life, and having worked for a few years in commercial radio. However, I was surprised at how very much I learned from this wonderful title. Thank you so much, Damon, for sharing your insights.

Damom Krukowski has thought a lot about sound. Not only are his insights are interesting, engaging, and well explained; this audiobook has changed the way I see and hear the world around me.
