The Dr. is a wierd one. I was interested in finding out what Quantum Physics was and some theory. Next thing I know he is talking about sex and shamans! If you've seen this guy and you can stomach listening to him talk about how Noi Noi made him horney, it will be worth it to hear how it all ties together. The first half is almost all Quantum Mechanics. And through it all he makes it interesting.
A really rotten book, It belongs with Scientoloy and other pseudo-scientific garbage. You obviously won;t post this.
My interests run to psychology, popular science, history, world literature, and occasionally something fun like Jasper Fforde. It seems like the only free time I have for reading these days is when I'm in the car so I am extremely grateful for audio books. I started off reading just the contemporary stuff that I was determined not to clutter up my already stuffed bookcases with. And now audio is probably 90% of my "reading" matter.
Such a disappointment. I was really looking forward to an accessible book about physics and the universe. But Mr. Wolf's idea of explaining something is simply to state the same thing again, only louder.
I love the topic and the information. I finally had to just stop listening to it because his high pitched voice and irritating presentation style wore me out. I appreciate enthusiasm and I definitely enjoy humor in heavy topics, but Fred goes so far over the top with both that I couldn't stand to listen to him.
The author doesn't really read text, but more like using notes on what to cover. His presentation style is suitable for 6-year old kids but the subject matter is for people over 15 years old. He should adjust his presentation style to suit his intended audience. The information presented was ok, but it made me cringe the way he presented it.
I am a fan of Dr. Wolfs but his constant rambling and role playing is just too annoying, I would cringe every time he would digress into these, complete distraction and unnecessary :-(
I should have known better with my science background. This is not even close to a science book of any science- let alone physics.
It's just a book about someone's CRAZY beliefs with no science backing the theory at all. Good luck in wasting your money. Shame on YOU if you think you will learn something.
I'm really enjoying this audiobook. As an engineer i already understand technical concepts, and found this book very easy to listen to. The narrator is very animated and dramatic (which may or not appeal to you) and for me was much more exciting and engaging than a monotone university lecturer.
The other great audiobook you should consider getting is Entanglement if you want more science and detail.
This audio book was alright. Unfortunately, he liked to imitate other accents which was okay once in awhile but did become tiresome. Other then that, the book was interesting.
After about half an hour or 45 minutes of listening. I have to skip and fast forward so I can "finish" the book.
I'm not convinced Dr. Wolf knows his quantum. I'm no particle physicist, but I've read a few books on the subject. I have lots of "really? are you sure?" moment listening to this book. I'm starting to think this Dr. Wolf guy is bogus. Someone who is a real physicist please comment on the accuracy of this book.
