With his appealing voice and moderate accent, Irish national Ruairi Conaghan performs this entertaining review of popular science topics, written by an Irish biochemistry professor with a knack for accessible writing. The summaries of what science knows about topics like gender differences, discrimination, and global warming intend to debunk common misconceptions and resolve gnarly controversies. The topics and the sheer volume of impressive research need careful handling to moderate the potential "know-it-all" tone of this type of writing. Conaghan's amiable narration keeps the audio light and prevents the author's love of science from sounding too nerdy. Though the conventions of the Irish language and culture will require adjustments for some Americans, the information is so fascinating that most people will find it hard to stop listening.
