Audible Editor Reviews

Six articles grace this special edition of Scientific American; half of which explain the language of the body, touching on insights offered by our gestures. Other articles delve into new advances in the early detection of autism and ways people can recover lost senses of smell. These narrated nuggets of science appeal to a wide audience. They are based in research, but chockfull of human stories. Plus, the talented performer makes these articles approachable. In particular, he proves his ease with technical language as he employs a conversational tone. These audio issues of Scientific American are perfect on-the-go education for busy-but-curious listeners.
