This is a great attempt to bring to light the life of Shakespeare within the context od the times he lived in.
Shakespeare's impact on the English language was probably only second to the bible. Not only the language but many of the cultural metaphors that now underpin our understanding of the world came from his art.
I listen to these books on long trips and I couldn't wait to get back on the road to finish it.
This is a very informative explanation of basic scientific principles and some theory. The examples and explanations are memorable. I can't wait to explain why we will never find the base of a rainbow.
If you are committed to a religious interpretation of nature you will likely bristle at the author's insistence that all myths and legends be regarded equally. This is a even-handed analysis of supernatural explanations for reality and those who cling to the miraculous will probably have difficulty with it.
This author might have a compelling story but it groans under the weight of cliched language, self-conscious foreshadowing and boring self-absorption. I couldn't finish it.
