Liam Gerrard's chipper performance would seem at odds with the subject of Danckert and Eastwood's audiobook. Yet, it's perfect. In this wide-ranging discussion on boredom, Gerrard's tone captures the authors' enthusiasm for a topic most would ignore. Listeners are given background on why people experience boredom. The discussion is philosophically engaging. Is boredom the expectation of stimulation that hasn't happened yet? How does boredom relate to pain? Why would people choose to electrocute themselves to avoid boredom? Do creatives do their best work to stave off boredom? Thoughtful, intellectual, yet accessible, Gerrard creates the environment of a master class, his voice projecting intelligence and interest as he takes listeners on a journey that's anything but dull.
