If you could sum up You Are Now Less Dumb in three words, what would they be?
Compelling. Eye-opening. Science-based.
What did you like best about this story?
It takes fairly complicated findings from neuroscience and cognitive science and evolution and puts a fun, simple spin on it without dumbing it down so people of all backgrounds can enjoy it.
Have you listened to any of Don Hagen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
stop being a sheep...become less dumb
Any additional comments?
I'm a neuroscientist and his facts and summations are scientifically accurate, but he doesn't make it heavy going. He explains things clearly and with a sense of humor!

I enjoyed that book (in audio), and I enjoyed this one. I like a free-ranging walk through psychology and our cognitive biases and errors, dished up with an informal tone and flashes of humor. I thought the earlier book ("You Are Not So Smart") a little more zesty and funny, but I'm fine with this one. I hope the author sees fit to produce some more titles, if he has ideas worthy of it, and I hope it is narrated by my favorite again, Don Hagen. Don sounded a bit more subdued or somber this time out, but that's OK. I doubt I will repeat the listening, but I reserve that mostly for the very most challenging and stirring titles anyway.
