Audible Editor Reviews

These 36 audio tracks presented by iMinds are powerful and penetrating learning tools captured in brief segments (eight minutes each) ideal for curious people on the go. The knowledge contained in the second volume of Polymath's "audio encyclopedia" spans subjects from pop artist Andy Warhol to Brazilian soccer prodigy Pelé. Each delightful store of information is enhanced by exceedingly well-chosen voice talent and subtle background music. It may be hard to believe that so many engaging facts could be supplied without sacrificing context and texture, but iMinds' micro-courses are always both carefully researched and thoughtfully curated for entertainment as well as intellectual value.
