THE ELEMENTS WE LIVE BY How Iron Helps Us Breathe, Potassium Lets Us See, and Other Surprising Superpowers of the Periodic Table

by | Read by Donna Postel

Contemporary Culture • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Donna Postel's narration is clear and energetic, making this audiobook an engaging listening experience. Røyne's accessible work about natural science provides an overview of how the natural environment connects us at the elemental level. Listeners learn about our origins from space dust and why our bodies need natural elements for survival. The audiobook captures how the rising global population and demand for technology impact our interactions with the environment. Why does Singapore import so much sand? How does the simple action of tapping our smartphone screens require the interplay of multiple elements? Postel's performance invites listeners in, emphasizing the mainstream approach of Røyne's work. The themes throughout speak to the meaning of our everyday existence.
