Audible Editor Reviews

In this Specialist edition of iMinds, the acclaimed audio encyclopedia zeroes in on a single broad category and then populates it with diverse, informative tracks. In Ideas & Concepts, Volume 1, alternating male and female performers offer engaging eight-minute courses on Stockholm Syndrome, déjà vu, Tragedy of the Commons, Murphy's Law, and many more. Artful and understated background music complements the mood of each segment, further enhancing the listening experience. The amiable voices in the iMinds library function as great teachers who always impart their knowledge successfully and who never keep their sated students after the bell.
