Michael Crouch's personable tone lends itself to storytelling, and there are plenty of tales to be told in this history of the human experience of color. Because the audiobook delves into history, culture, art, chemistry, biology, nature, economics, and politics, Crouch's peppy delivery is helpful when drier portions dominate. Author Adam Rogers's enthusiasm for the subject matter is evident, as are his buttoned-down humor and love of details. The audiobook explores how the reproduction of colors has changed the way we think and developed as a species. Even the naming of colors in different societies is a subject of philosophical interest. If you're curious why Colonial Americans didn't paint their interiors or why titanium oxide is in your paint and your sunscreen, this audiobook is for you.
