I wish I had paid attention to the previous negative reviews, because I have discovered that they are accurate. I am almost finished listening to this AB, and it is amazing how often I've considered giving up the laborious task.
I could not complete this AB, and regret its purchase. The analogies cited were sometimes helpful, but many could not be followed without supporting graphics. Using analogies to describe what something is NOT is pointless and confusing.
I may be too simple-minded to grasp the concepts being presented, although I did enjoy listening to Stephen Hawking's "The Grand Design" and felt comfortable to consider additional titles.
What really turned me off were Sean Carroll's injections of demonstrating his supposed cleverness over others in his field. Coupled with Mr. Synnestvedt's narration sounding to me like that of satirist Mo Rocca, this AB lacked the humility I expect from a great mind pondering the mysteries of our universe.
