"Narrator Dennis Boutsikaris, no stranger to nonfiction, performs a re-examination of human evolution that puts our arboreal origins at its hub. Boutsikaris takes on a conversational tone, which increases the accessibility of this well-researched audiobook by helping listeners connect with the importance of trees, not only for humankind's physical development but also for our sociocultural and technological advances...."
"I first fell in love with “American Gods” when I was fifteen. Neil Gaiman’s sprawling novel, from 2001, had influences that at the time I hadn’t really encountered—echoes of Tim O’Brien, Don DeLillo, and Stephen King, not to mention the mythologies it explicitly draws from—and that were completely exhilarating for a suburban teen-ager.....From Gaiman’s mannered British interludes to the expert narration of Dennis Boutsikaris....."
From neuroscientist and New York Times best-selling author of Still Alice comes a powerful and heartbreaking exploration of regret, forgiveness, freedom, and what it means to be alive. Earphones Award Winner
"Narrators Dennis Boutsikaris and Dagmara Dominczyk bring to life this compelling story of the impact of ALS on a patient and his caregivers. Boutsikaris gets inside the mind and spirit of Richard, a world-renowned pianist who is blindsided with his diagnosis at the height of his career. His voice runs the gamut from disbelief to depressed resignation. As the disease progresses, we hear in Boutsikaris's voice the painful struggle as communication becomes more challenging"
A collection of four chilling novels, ingeniously wrought gems of terror from the brilliantly imaginative number one New York Times best-selling author of The Fireman, Joe Hill. (With Will Wheaton and Kate Mulgrew...who Really know what they're doing!)
Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan and Labor Relations all connected by one great song.
“No matter how much you think you know about Bob Dylan and Woody Guthrie, you’re wrong… This is the best sense anyone has ever made about the connection between them, and the best reappraisal either has had in a couple of decades.” (Dave Marsh)
“In Grown-Up Anger, Daniel Wolff assembles an American triad to raise the ghosts of greed and misery. Through memory, music, and a clear insight into the emotional process of protest, Wolff reminds us of how it did, and how it does, ultimately feel.” (Patti Smith) AUDIOFILE MAGAZINE REVIEW
"If excellence in audiobook narration means doing everything right while seeming to do little or nothing, Dennis Boutsikaris sets a standard here. In a feat of storytelling, Wolff has combined his own personal history growing up in Northern Michigan with the life stories of Bob Dylan and Woody Guthrie, and the intertwined histories of American folk music and radical politics. A notorious event in the labor movement, the Calumet Massacre, is a featured connection. Boutsikaris's reading is expressive but restrained, calculatingly understated in the manner of the music and performers he's describing. No accents or half-sung lyrics mar a performance that matches the text in every nuance yet never draws attention to itself. Here's a narrative that engages the heart and mind for a deeply satisfying listening experience. "
From Michael Lewis, the Story of Two Friends Who Changed How We Think About the Way We Think
"Most decisions we make are based, in some part, on irrationality-- sometimes referred to as a gut feeling or intuition. Author Michael Lewis simplifies the brain-boggling lifework of Amos Tversky and Danny Kahneman, who developed the new discipline of behavioral economics to explain the seeming irrationality of financial decision making. Narrator Dennis Boutsikaris' faultless and cogent reading keeps the project moving...." Audiofile Jan 2017 AUDIOFILE REVIEW
"A panoramic history of technological revolution… a sweeping, thrilling tale… Throughout his action-packed story, Isaacson… offers vivid portraits--many based on firsthand interviews--[and] weaves prodigious research and deftly crafted anecdotes into a vigorous, gripping narrative about the visionaries whose imaginations and zeal continue to transform our lives."

“It was one of those summer Tuesday afternoons when you begin to wonder if the earth has stopped revolving. The telephone on my desk had the look of something that knows it’s being watched. Traffic trickled by in the street below, and there were a few pedestrians, too, men in hats going nowhere.”
