Wrong Article

This was the wrong article. It said this was about how sleep shapes memory but the article was about exercise. Please fix.

Great info, but I'll stick with print

What disappointed you about Scientific American?

The reading of the articles was very disappointing. I can describe it as slightly robotic, with sentences that frequently end on an "up" note, as if they are questions. The reading is too distracting for me.

What did you like best about this story?

I like the science info—interesting and accessible as always for this publication.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Mark Moran?

I'm not certain I would have a specific recommendation. This doesn't need someone who can "do voices" or or read dramatically. It just needs a neutral narration that allows the information to be listened to without distracting narration habits described above.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointed because I'd love to be able to "read" this magazine while commuting but I can't listen to the narration style.
