The book itself is interesting and explains a complex subject in very plain language, yet the audio performance ruins it somehow.
Perhaps the publisher was overcompensating for the author's fast talking style, the narrator chosen talks way too slowly, with a weird stage-y voice throughout, as if being consciously highbrow, giving the impression of old educational tapes. The slow pace and mumbled sound forces the mind to wander, and I have to constantly pull myself back. Concentrating doesn't help, because when you concentrate, you cannot help but think, and you can't help thinking faster than he talks.
A great popular science book -- I recommend buying it in print instead.
