This is one of those books you wish would never end. Olds is one of those people you wish you knew.
A great listen, I have already recommended this book to several people. In fact, I was so moved that I need to read the book as well.
We have heard stories about Einstein, unfortunately these stories are tales and legends or simple not true.
Einstein is a deep man, some one I would have like to have known. There is so much I did not know about him, such as his defense of Civil Rights in the USA. To his way with women.
As well, I chose this book because of my love of physics and it did not disappoint.
Get it, you will love it, the only disappointment will be when it comes to an end, 21 hours never went by so quickly!
This is near the top of my audio book list; it is one of those rare books that I can't wait to get back to. Like books from Bill Bryson and Dan Brown, "Dispatches from the Edge" is captivating.
Anderson Cooper is an interesting character; although he is from a wealthy family, the path he chose is quite different and he should be commended for that. His insights into humanities hot spots provide a glimpse that is usually not provided by those of his profession. Overall, it is an execellent listen and worth the time.
The author did make some valid points with respect to the break out principle. However, he spends too much time on mysticism and mixing science and religion. Call me old fashion, but religion is not science and vice-versa.
There are a key few minutes that delve into making the breakout principle work for you, but it is not worth the money. It is a combination of relaxation, tuning out, and entering what runners call the zone, for peak performance.
In a phrase: "I was not impressed".
