Where does How We Got to Now rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
This is really a very interesting book about the development of everyday life tools we take for granted (light, clean water, sound recordings, etc). The stories for each major area are extremely interesting and the narrator does an excellent job of getting the message across. If there is ever a volume two to this series I will definitely get it!

What made the experience of listening to How We Got to Now the most enjoyable?
The content of this book is fascinating! If it had been a physical book, I wouldn't have been able to put it down.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Being a non-fiction book, this question doesn't apply. I think the chapter on "Glass" was perhaps my favorite.
Which character – as performed by George Newbern – was your favorite?
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
A man spent his fortune transporting ice to the Caribbean, only to learn the people there had no idea what it was or what it could be used for. We take ice for granted, but if you've never seen it, never had a cold drink, or never eaten ice cream, then why would you buy it?
Any additional comments?
Great book! "Out of the box" subject matter!
