the book relies heavily in parts on the pdf with its diagrams, sketches etc- and I don't walk around listening to a book with a lot a paper to look at.
The author underplays the horror- and no other word properly conveys what the church did- of how Galileo was mistreated, lied to and denied medical treatment by the church.
This audiobook is a discussion by the author mostly showing details in photos that, of course, do not appear in an audiobook.
I agree with most of his ideas, but it needs a companion pdf and should have been professionally narrated.
This is an amazing story, very well-written and very well-read. The author tells the incredible and moving story of the beak-in of the media FBI office, and the subsequent release of previously secret files that gave huge insight into the FBI and Hoover's control of it.
But she goes further to explain events since and the dangers of more recent events, like the Patriot Act.
The stories are lovely, and he seems to have a nice family, but this is about 1% science & the rest story-telling
This book brings it all together- literally.
His quantum mechanics=Deist thesis is a little out there, but he explains it that way.
Otherwise it is an amazing book- should be required reading
A fantastic set of essays, brilliantly delivered
I openly wept at the end- to realize the world's loss of this intellect
