TITLE: The Science of Why: Answers to Questions About the World Around Us
AUTHOR: Jay Ingram
PUBLICATION DATE: 2016
I haven't had much luck with audiobooks. They tend to put me to sleep or my mind wonders or the reader doesn't appeal to me. Anyway, I decided to give audiobooks another try by selecting a book with short, non-related chapters. The Science of Why looked like a perfect book for this trial. Unfortunately, I'm still not convinced audiobooks will work for me, and I wasn't impressed by the book either.
This is a collection of a few interesting, but mostly silly questions about a variety of topics and their scientific answers. I enjoyed the few topics that interested me, but the majority of the topics were frivolous and thus not enjoyable. After a while, the book started to get tedious. However, due to the nature of the questions, this book may appeal to teenagers.
In terms of the audio book, the author reads fairly well, though he did sound like he could use a drink and pronouncing "te" instead of "to" got really annoying after a few chapters.
