WISER The Scientific Roots of Wisdom, Compassion, and What Makes Us Good

by | Read by Roger May

Personal Growth • 12 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

This examination of the facets of wisdom has the tone of both an absorbing TED talk and a social science research paper. It is a multilayered consumer guide to a common human trait, as well as an inside look at how a painstaking researcher might define a neurobiological or personality construct. Roger May narrates with slow and thoughtful pacing. His pleasing voice and deliberate diction are good matches for the philosophical quality of the audiobook. The subject itself is broad, spanning the realms of psychology, morality, cognition, empathy, decision-making, and impulse control. Helped by the narrator's audible respect for the depth of this writing, listeners will savor the slow unfolding of this complex and satisfying topic.
