David Henkin’s encyclopedic audiobook, The Week, is equal parts sociology and arcane history about the human impact of the seven-day week. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Robin Whitten discuss how this mix of history, psychology, sociology, and social observations makes for fascinating listening with Pete Cross at the narrative helm. The author is an expert on the uses and impact of the seven-day week, and he writes in a friendly style. Cross’s sparkling performance makes this a quick listen.
