    Long time listener here I have been anticipating this book for a while, and it did not disappoint I enjoyed the audiobook Steves narration is easy to listen to while also being engaging However, the encyclopedia like layout make the printed version a practical compendium for later reference It is excellent for understanding how the mind works doesn t work, and how w
