Audible Editor Reviews

A polymath is a person who is an expert on a variety of subjects, and listeners can aspire to be just that with this wide-ranging anthology of learning from iMinds. From crop circles to Confucius, fireworks to the Federal Reserve, these 36 educational vignettes weigh in at roughly eight minutes apiece, and pack in a trove of knowledge for inquiring minds on a busy schedule. Each of these densely packed founts of information is provided a fluid, even-paced, linear delivery, and is performed by a member of iMinds' ensemble cast of actors and documentarians, which includes, among others, up-and-coming actor Luca James Lee and British voice artist Ellouise Rothwell.

I love this type of thing

Where does Polymath, Volume 1 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

High.


What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

I enjoyed all the tidbits of information. While I would never buy them individually, I do like the bundled idea. It is sensible and 3+ hours of knowledge goes quickly on long rides. The diverse topics makes this a real steal.
