Dr. Wolf certainly knows his subject and that subject is fascinating. While the assembly of information and the progression of the talk is good the presentation is poor.
It would seem that Dr. Wolf is attempting to teach Quantum Physics to Grade Schoolers. The over acting and often childish commentary is distracting. It would have been better if Dr. Wolf had delivered his talk in a more serious way while keeping an element of humour where appropriate.
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 :-(
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.
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.
Purchasing this item was the worst buying decision I've ever made. This clown talks to people with stupid fake accents like if we're all a bunch of a 9 year old listening to a bed time story. The material had no substance even if you can some how ignore his annoying voice.
Even if you can get something out of it, it's questionable what he says is even true because it seems to contradict (or very inaccurately describes) the teachings of Stephen Hawkings and Brian Green who are far more creditable.
The only positive thing that came out of this experience is that I now ALWAYS read customer reviews before making a purchase.
