This was my first Audible Podcast and I chose this Sarah Waters edition because I recently completed the audio version of her book "The Night Watch". I thought it was an excellent interview which captured the changing styles and rythms of Sarah's writings and provided insight into her latest title.
In addition, I found the selection of audio extracts very worthwhile and interesting.
Some readers seem to feel that Surowiecki stretches this idea further than it really deserves thus leading to some repetition or padding. It didn't feel that way to me. Using genuinely interesting examples the author makes a case for how and why the wisdom of crowds works before going on to clarify the conditions that differentiate this approach from a simple matter of asking a bunch of people what they think and averaging the results. In addition to being just long enough it's also well narrated although the production standards are poor; hence the dropped star. Ten minutes in I no longer noticed the slightly muffled delivery.
