Audible Editor Reviews

This jam-packed edition of popular psychology and neuroscience magazine Scientific American Mind features an exciting cover story about a recently researched cranial nerve which could hold answers about how human pheromones function. This issue also addresses a variety of other wide-ranging topics including how (or whether) acupuncture works, what human happiness really entails and how it might be achieved, and the mysterious but not uncommon human preoccupation with garbage. This riveting audiobook also contains articles about online dating - what can we expect in years to come? - and the nature of home as a psychological concept.
Mark Moran’s deft, conversational narration makes it easy to access and enjoy these fascinating insights into the world of modern science.

Not what i thougt

I thought i was going to hear about some secret nerve the whole audio, but it was only for about 30 minutes, when he talked about it in whales and some other animals. Interesting that there can be some nerve, but i did not hear anything about it that i can use.

Also he talked about online dating, people who collect stuff, and some other stuff too.

I give it 2 stars. For telling me about this nerve.

Interesting Issue...

With everything from the primitive nerve that may have a lot to do with mating to tips to successful online dating (or successful avoidance of same).
