Narrator Arthur Morey employs an authoritative tone and a pleasing rhythm as he performs this essential study of the evolution of rational thought. Pinker examines current society in the age of "truthiness." That's Stephen Colbert's word for something seeming to be accurate, even if it's not necessarily true. In a period of rampant conspiracy theories, the inability to ascertain truth puts all of society at risk, making this work essential for discerning listeners. As Morey weaves the facts into a listenable and informative narrative, the solid ideas tell us exactly where society is now and, for people interested in arriving at actual truth, give us a road map for the future.
