Praise for the original Listen to Genius! series:

-American Library Association

“Read aloud, the material manages to come across as more accessible than in book format...The entire series merits serious attention.”

-Publishers Weekly

“Breaks ground in accessing ideas and offers innovative opportunities to listeners.”
