Gives a good tour of current high energy particle physics. It's broken into sections. The first is for those questioning faith and just discovering the wonders of nature and science.
You could easily skip to part two and still love the book. She includes many technical details of the LHC.
The particle at the end of the universe. The reason is that it is the most up to date book regarding information on the HIGGS candidate and subsequent announcement in July of 2012
the title sucks and Lisa knows that it does. She even devoted time in the book talking about how calling the Higgs the God particle was a mistake
I read this first, then listened to it. I loved it. I wish he explained the bootstrap paradox, but he didn't.
the performance or read, felt rushed. the book is still excellent and worth reading I think.
The Trouble With Physics: is still one of my favorite books. Read it first if you haven't already.
There is nothing wrong with this book. I would be quite interesting to someone new to Dawkins. If you have read many of his books and watched the BBC specials, then you are already familiar with a good portion of the story.
I would have said his performance was excellent except that I went to an appearance where he read from the book. His performance in person was quite funny, lively and emotional. The Audible read was more reserved.
I found the book didn't grab my attention until he wrote about his graduate work and beyond. It seemed to end abruptly as well. I have a feeling an authorized 3rd person biography would be much more interesting.
You know you're going to read it anyway. Why bother reading these reviews? It's good, it's just not his best
eye opening how irresponsible the media is when publishing a story
yes. andrew wakefield should be held accountable for the damage he has caused.
the rest of the mail order quacks should be publicly ridiculed for their nonsense. I'm talking about you Chopra
I'm extremely picky about which audio books I download so they are all really good or I return them. This one stands apart. I could easily rank it in my top 5
Richard Lenski's experiment
The timbre of his voice and the refinement of the performance is "like wiping your ass with silk"
only an intelligent friend that enjoys both history and science
I liked the timeline of timekeeping and it's effects on society
honestly I think Adam frank did a better job explaining time that Sean Carroll did in his book. The two books are very different though
yes. it's a great book. It is a tad brief but still enjoyable
my 3 word summary: people believe that?
It was eye opening. I had no idea how far people's marbles were rolling.
I laughed a lot
follow his blog at discovermagazine
without hesitation. It allows the reader to look at different beliefs/superstitions from the outside
