Can't forget synesthesia!

I definitely found the information in this audiobook good. I can't say much else about it.. You can learn a lot just by sitting back in the car and closing your eyes and that's all there is to it. It's a brain issue, and it deserves some attention.

Be prepared to hear info repeated over and over

Not a bad book but repetitive to the point where it almost felt like chapters were being reread and/or repeated... after chapter 3 it repeats as if the book is starting over

Definitely a great book to listen to. If you ask me, there should be more books like this out there. I'll check out the rest from this author.
