Editorial Reviews

This ingenious feast of knowledge presented by iMinds includes 72 self-contained micro-courses on subjects as varied as international whaling practices, the life and legacy of Andy Warhol, the future of wind power, the controversy surrounding military detention center Guantanamo Bay, and the ritual meaning of Stonehenge. Genius: Volume 1 offers six tracks for each of iMinds' 12 subjects, ensuring both that no listener will grow bored and that no listener will walk away without a broad store of knowledge. The actors' voices are pleasant and refined, further bolstered by subject-appropriate background music that heightens the human performances without calling too much attention to itself.

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.
