    Quantum physics is an astounding (and mind-boggling) field of science, but can you actually use it to change your life? Absolutely yes, says Dr. Quantum. On A User's Guide to Your Universe, Dr. Quantum, who goes by day as mild-mannered physicist Dr. Fred Alan Wolf, teaches that anyone can understand quantum physics. What's more, it is the most useful, immediate, and relevant kind of science you can learn to profoundly affect your day-to-day life.

    "Fascinating subject, poor presentation"
    Overall

    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.

    Neil deGrasse Tyson has a talent for guiding readers through the mysteries of outer space with stunning clarity and almost childlike enthusiasm. This collection of his essays from Natural History magazine explores a myriad of cosmic topics. Tyson introduces us to the physics of black holes by explaining what would happen to our bodies if we fell into one; he also examines the needless friction between science and religion, and notes Earth's status as "an insignificantly small speck in the cosmos".

    Lind says: "Well written and well read"
    "Well written and well read"
    Overall

    Neil deGrasse Tyson presents this complex subject in a clear and gripping way. The reader,Dion Graham, has just the right pace and inflection to keep your attention. Normally, this subject requires diagrams to clarify what is being said but this presentation is clear without them.

    An absorbing book that I look forward to hearing again.
