This is a comprehensive discussion of the life and works of the great man, Paul Dirac. The author does an excellent job at painting a picture, and I could see, in my mind's eye, every scene.
The narrator is engaging, and I was hooked on every word. I only wish I could find another biography on a physicist of this era, done this well.
Bravo, I only depressed its over.
I felt like I was there as these events took place. Very engaging.
If you're looking to learn field theory, or relativistic quantum mechanics, well then this is not for you. If you want to spend some time learning about one of physics most interesting characters, and empathize with him...then enjoy.
Listening to the audiobook, I found it amusing that the title character sometimes sounded like, and had behaviors reminiscent of, The Simpsons character Sideshow Bob.
I do not say that in a derogatory way. It actually made the book more entertaining and enjoyable. Not to mention that the physical appearance of the title character on the cover is, also, reminiscent of the Simpsons character.
The performance was wonderful, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I loved this backstory, And how it puts the new trilogy (episodes 12 and three) in context.
The only criticism I have, is that of a few lines squeezed in here or there, that were put there in order to justify statements made in the movies. I feel that they were unnecessary, and distracting. However, there is only three or four of these throughout the story.
I lived the performance, the sound effects and the music. This was an interesting character study of Luke Skywalker in between episodes 4 and 5. I found it enjoyable.
This is by far the best popular audio book on Neurology I have to date purchased. I highly recommend this audiobook to anyone interested in the subject.The writing style is excellentand extremely engaging.The narrator does a wonderful job. Truly a great experience.
