    "Text book"

    A bit too dull, just when you think it is going to get to a point it references another chapter of the book.

    Story
    "Well written but too much like a reference book"

    The style of writing in this book is very easy to listen to and the narrator certainly gets this across well. The concepts of how the brain works and how our senses interact with our brains is thorough. As the book is sequential in nature, it reads like a reference book. This makes it heavy going to listen to. Cases studies are very short as you would expect in a reference book but given that the book is an audible book, longer case studies would have helped a narrative thread. This is my main criticism of the book.
    The one thing that the book doesn't say is how cognitive psychology helps people or give solid ideas to the reader about how he/she could use it. A greater focus on case studies and ideas for the reader would have been best.
    The recording is good although whenever the narrator says the word, "Psychology" the sibilance is painful!
    An interesting book but not really effective as an audio book given it's reference type structure.

    Story
    "fantastic science book"

    I love the For Dummies format and this didn't dissapoint. Each chapter and section is short and concise giving the reader/listener all the information needed on a topic but also just enough speculation to provoke further interest on the topic. The chapter references are really helpful and as such I will be buying a paper copy to take full advantage of these.
