    Quantum theory is weird. As Niels Bohr said, if you aren’t shocked by quantum theory, you don’t really understand it. For most people, quantum theory is synonymous with mysterious, impenetrable science. And in fact for many years it was equally baffling for scientists themselves. In this tour de force of science history, Manjit Kumar gives a dramatic and superbly written account of this fundamental scientific revolution.

    "The Drama of Physics"
    Overall

    The information presented was quite interesting and the author has a knack for presenting the events of the time and the people involved with a dramatic tension that captures your attention. Unfortunately, I found that I could not finish listening to even the first part due to the unremitting negativity and bleakness. Perhaps it lightens up later on, I shall never know..it was such a relief to call it quits that I can't imagine taking it up again. The subject matter is fascinating and well worth exploring, but this particular book might well put you off the topic and people involved...unless you're enjoy the works of Samuel Beckett, of whom this author reminds me.

    In Fierce Invalids Home from Hot Climates, the wise, witty, always gutsy Tom Robbins brings onstage the most complex and compelling character he has ever created. But to describe a Robbins plot does not begin to describe a Robbins novel - you must hear it for yourself! Browse other Tom Robbins at audible.com.

    Overall

    Keith Szarabajka does for Tom Robbins what film maker Peter Jackson did for J.R.R.Tolkien. It's the original but Szarabajka brings ever so much more depth, pacing and characterization to the novel that just reading the book yourself (which I did years ago) seems drier and less fulfilling by comparison. Tom Robbins fans, rejoice! Encore! Encore!
