This Idea is Brilliant blew me away with the depth, creativity, and pure intelligence behind many of the ideas presented. I am a binge listener but the concepts and implications were just so thought provoking I found myself constantly having to pause just to process the ~5 minutes of the last essay. As a scientist, I am often disappointed with science and technology books being "pop science" or written by non-experts making exaggerated claims an honest scientist would not, that was rare in this book.
This audiobook, as the description explains, is a collection of essays grouped generally by a topic or theme. This allows for the clarification of overlapping concepts and sometimes a new perspective. The manuscripts for all these essays are freely available on the Edge website but I still strongly recommend the audio format. The over 206 essays from every type of science cover a wide variety of topics so there will be at least a few world-changing concepts for you even if you have a narrow scientific interest.
Absolutely fantastic, one of the my best spent credits in a long time!

Some very interesting essays from a wide variety of fields. I enjoyed the whole book, but only flagged about 10% for re-review, your mileage may vary.
