Ellyn Jameson's lilting phrasing and beautiful sonority could have upstaged this writing, but she moderates her talent just enough to create the perfect vehicle for this mind-expanding audiobook. Her pacing and sense of wonder about the author's message add life to the learning experience. The principal author, a Johns Hopkins brain scientist, explains the many ways that our neurological wiring benefits from exposure to almost any form of artistic expression. Whether we engage with art as a spectator or a creator, the authors say, aesthetic experiences have the power to enrich our curiosity about life and provoke open-minded exploration of the world around us. Jameson's interpretations and vocal character make this audiobook as enjoyable to spend time with as it is mind-broadening. T.W. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2023]
