Take my rating with a grain of salt because audio was just not the right format for me to read this book in. I think I would have enjoyed it much more if I would have read it. Strangely, I think the narrator was the same (or very, very similar) to the one in the audio of 1984 that I listened to, and I had the same issue of not being able to concentrate at all. So overall, the stories that I listened (and paid attention to) were interesting - who knew that music has so many effects on the body besides enjoyment and emotion? I'd try something from Sacks again, just not in audio.

I have very mixed feelings about this audio book. The content is interesting, but the reader sounds like he is auditioning for the Upper-Class Twit of the Year contest. In short, I would recommend reading the actual book rather than listening to it.
