Thankfully, narrator Alex Hyde-White adopts the tone of a storyteller in delivering this complex work. The author explores human innovation through the lens of evolutionary science, introducing the concept of a "fitness landscape" and "landscape thinking" to explain efficient and likely pathways of creativity and adaptation. His ideas are contrasted with dominant Darwinian assumptions. Hyde-White takes his time with the wide-ranging examples, allowing listeners to visualize the intricate theories and outcomes being described. His deep voice is clear and confident as he modulates his tone while describing scientific and mathematical concepts ranging from molecular biology to genetic drift and algorithms. An unconventional look at problem-solving for listeners interested in expanding their thinking on the science of creativity. A.S. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2019]
