    In one of the most exciting and accessible explanations of The Theory of Relativity in recent years, Professors Brian Cox and Jeff Forshaw go on a journey to the frontier of 21st century science to consider the real meaning behind the iconic sequence of symbols that make up Einstein's most famous equation, exploring the principles of physics through everyday life.

    Overall

    Audio books, in the main, are an effective means of absorbing difficult concepts.
    There are however pit-falls. E=MC2 falls into one of them.
    This audio version only needs a few diagrams to make it the best tutorial on Relativity.
    A complementary web site would lift it from frustratingly incomplete to brilliant.

    Story

    The Ancestor's Tale is a pilgrimage back through time - a journey on which we meet up with fellow pilgrims as we and they converge on our common ancestors. Chimpanzees join us at about six million years in the past, gorillas at seven million years, orangutans at 14 million years, as we stride on together, a growing band. The journey provides the setting for a collection of some 40 tales.

    A User says: "Very abridged, but fascinating anyway"
    "If all audio books were this good ....."
    Overall

    I've read the book and listened to the audio book.
    Although the audio is an abridged version, I enjoyed it more.
    Dawkins is as brilliant a speaker as he is a writer and Lalla Ward is the perfect complement.
    One plus one = three.
    Together they make the understanding of a complex subject effortless and pleasurable.
