    He's a self-described beach bum who won his houseboat in a card game. He's also a knight errant who's wary of credit cards, retirement benefits, political parties, mortgages, and television. He only works when his cash runs out, and his rule is simple: he'll help you find whatever was taken from you, as long as he can keep half.

    Michael Cavacini says: "An Entertaining Start To A Classic Series"
    "EXCELLENT PERIOD PIECE. OUTSTANDING FIRST BOOK."

    Stephen Hawking's worldwide best seller, A Brief History of Time, has been a landmark volume in scientific writing. Its author's engaging voice is one reason, and the compelling subjects he addresses is another: the nature of space and time, the role of God in creation, the history and future of the universe.

    David says: "Stick with the original: A brief history of time"
    "Etertaining and understandable"

    Where does A Briefer History of Time rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?

    This audiobook would rank in the top 30th percentile of the hundreds that I have read/listened to.


    What other book might you compare A Briefer History of Time to and why?

    THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH by Richard Dawkins compares favorably to A BRIEFER HISTORY IN TIME because they both offer believable options as to how and why we might exist.I would add: THE BLANK SLATE by Steven Pinker and 36 ARGUMENTS FOR THE EXISTENCE OF GOD by Rebecca Newberger.


    What about Erik Davies???s performance did you like?

    I believe Erik Davis's performance made a complicated subject alive, understandable and enjoyable.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    This is a book that I enjoyed reading and re-listening to over a 2 day time period because there was so much that I wished to remember.


    Any additional comments?

    I have about 90 books on my wish list so it will be a while before I add A BRIEF HISTORY OF TIME to my list.
