    Scientific American presents a collection of key scientific essays written by Nobel Prize winners Albert Einstein, Niels Bohr, I.I. Rabi, and Leon Lederman - never before available in audio! Einstein's essay, "On the Generalized Theory of Gravitation" (1950) is an account of the extension of the generalized theory of relativity. Next are tributes to Einstein upon his death in 1955, written by Niels Bohr and I.I. Rabi. Finally, "The Two Neutrino Experiment" by Leon Lederman.

    Overall

    This is a great look to the history of some of the greatest minds in this and last century. It shows the falibility of of the human mind but where one falls short another takes over and expands on the theory of Unifacation, Black Holes and the Birth of the Universe. A great listen.

    Seconds before the Earth is demolished to make way for a galactic freeway, Arthur Dent is plucked off the planet by his friend Ford Prefect, a researcher for the revised edition of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy who, for the last 15 years, has been posing as an out-of-work actor.

    Well, what can I say. The book was better than the movie, that's about all...

    In this unscripted recording, renowned astrophysicist Dr. Richard Berendzen takes you on a journey through space and time that is captivating from the moment he begins to speak. Enjoy the best of both worlds: an expert's knowledge in a user-friendly format!

    Overall

    This is a quick and dirty intro in general physics for us who never took Physics in school. Now at 54 I am taking college classes in Math, AstroPhysics, Physics as a hobby and it adds to my Hobby of Astronomy. Pulp Physics got me ready for the class enviorment and found I was a step ahead of the "younger" members of the classe.

    Overall

    I first read these books while in the Army overseas. To listen to them on on iPod in my Truck and at night as I go to sleep brings back a lot of memories. I have always love Anne McCaffery's writing. She gets you so involved you think you are there on Pern fighting the Thread.

    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.

    Overall

    I thought I was getting a up to date explaination in layman's terms of Quantum Mechanics and Relativity. Instead I get what sounds like a Tao/Buddist/Eastern Philosophy on Life in the Universe. This is not for someone interested in Physics. If you want to know someone's idea of where you fit in the Universe this is your book.

    A wasted Credit for me....
