There are very few books that seem to take advantage of audiobook technology as this one has. It is a lecture explaining the origin of music, as well as the developments and changes of schools of thought behind each form of music and how to develop an ear for it, with snippets of the music discussed broken down in each lecture to clarify the lecturer's point, followed by the full piece discussed at the end.
I feel like I can understand music, even modern music, better.
This is not an encyclopedia of all Doctor Who incarnations, companions and villains. It is a brief history of the Doctor both on-screen and off-screen from the beginning, focusing especially on the politics behind the scenes.
There is an entire chapter on the Daleks, and an emphasis on Gallifrey. As a viewer of the modern series with no knowledge of the classic Doctors, this was a brilliant journey through time (pun intended) which helped me appreciate the show even more.
I was trapped in a horror movie with devil worshipping psychopaths from another dimension who wanted to destroy earth by casting a curse that would kill everybody in seven days. This book worked great!

I had this book in my wish list for two years and without a doubt, that was a huge mistake. This book was outstanding! Not a huge tennis fan but this is such a great story. I loved hearing about Andre when he was little. I loved hearing about his rise to the tennis ranks and I loved listening to how he remained on top. I even loved hearing about his personal relationships as well. Most impressively, the narrator did a tremendous job and the book is written in such a great way, it made me wonder if Agassi actuallly did write this. If so, he writing ability may be as good as his tennis talents! Two thumbs up and highly recommended!!!
