    "Jonathan Miller"

    The undoubtedly one of the great mind of the last 100 years. Knowledgeable on almost any topic he strike me as an expect on all things concerning the human condition.
    I always am captivated by his insights, perspective and perceptiveness and the eloquence with which he shares his ideas.
    I wish there was more available on audible.
