Would you listen to Elastic again? Why?
This is one of those times when I wish that I had the actual hard copy book because the content is very interesting and I would refer to the hard copy book. I don't think I could listen to the book again because the narration felt choppy and was distracting. Tough to listen to in the car because it tended to make me drowsy.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Leonard Mlodinow?
I think a professional narrator would have been a better option. I don't think Mr. Mlodinow aided his cause.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
What made the experience of listening to Elastic the most enjoyable?
I always enjoy when the author narrates, even if they're not as "great a performance" as some other narrators. I enjoyed the personal anecdotes and I feel that Mlodinow could have used these moments more often. He uses the clause, "In today's society," a bunch and this is where I felt that he was forcing the academic thesis of the book whereas his summation of case studies and personal experiences fully elucidated his argument.
What did you like best about this story?
The exploration of schizotypy: I feel an entire book could be written on schizotypy and elastic thinking.
What about Leonard Mlodinow’s performance did you like?
He is the author.
