I admit that I never seriously studied Einstein's equations or quantum physics, but this book gave me a great outline of the development of modern physics. I am now motivated to listen to other audiobooks on modern physics or even get some paper books that contain equations. Michio Kaku is also good at depicting human side of Einstein and other physicists. It's fun to think about Einstein writing numerous love letters. I also never imagined that Schrödinger was a serious womanizer!

I enjoyed this book; the story was excellent. It takes you through the periodic table, from a historic point of view. The reader was well above average and I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in chemistry. I learned many interesting facts about the elements that were not in my school books. It is also a great companion book to listen to while taking a chemistry class. That is what I did, and it made me even more interested in the class than I already was.
