Straight to the point, if you are one of those
After listening to "The Sociopath Next Door", which is excellent, I was pleasantly surprised. It starts with the author in his early years where psychopathy was somewhat new and gradually changes into a dissection of the disorder. While if found the stories less entertaining than the "Sociopath Next Door", the overall experience is worth it.
While it is interesting to hear stories about the people in the field, I prefer less history more science. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy history and it is fun to hear about how the scientific community works but not for 10 hours.
There are some good bits of science facts you might find interesting, however after of listening to many other books I could have passed on this one.
These days we have more opinions than facts.
Just listen to republicans and their super hero larger than life Regan. They make up history as they go and society doesn't fact check. History is changed and rewritten by the media, the politicians and the ignorant.
I would like to see more books like this one.
Listen to it right NOW.
This audiobook should be played in the background while you drive, in the kids bedroom, while you sleep. It should be your ringtone.
Listen to it right NOW.
I have never heard "this one time..." so many times! He's a scientist not a story teller. However, most of it is interesting, especially the NASA part. There are weird parts (rambling) and not so interesting parts but overall it's good stuff. The naration was good but I found the voice tiresome for long listening.
If you are into physics or even biographies, this one is a ok choice.
I've listened to many history books. Some of them are boring, some are too detailed and I lose interest but not this one. I always want facts and this book delivers and that's a fact.
Octavian was an interesting figure but then again the Roman history is interesting in itself.
If you love history, then this is a great book. If your thing is Roman history, then this is a no brainer.
Narration is good. The first part is a great introduction of the main subjects. The second part things go where no one has gone before. Sure, these are the subjects physicists face today and Kaku is very optimistic in his views. He doesn't really explore different points of views as his positions for string theory and quantum physics are well known.
Who cares it's fun to listen too.
It surely doesn't go into details about everything but that's a good thing. Good narration. Makes you feel you are in a classroom listening to a great teacher.
