I love this type of thing

Where does Polymath, Volume 1 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

High.

What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

I enjoyed all the tidbits of information. While I would never buy them individually, I do like the bundled idea. It is sensible and 3+ hours of knowledge goes quickly on long rides. The diverse topics makes this a real steal.
