I listened to this and the sequel "What Einstein told his cook" and was fascinated with both. With a background in science and engineering, I learned a few fun facts reading the book. I would recommend this to anyone, regardless of their level of scientific knowledge. The book is well written and narrated, except for a few bad puns and jokes (which I really did enjoy with a small smile ;-).
This book i snot up to Mr. Brown's past. Every situation that occurs, at first there doesn't seem to be a way out but at the last minute a solution seems to materialize out of nowhere. While the action is good and the book moves along, the believability suffers as the story progresses.
On the good side, the references to Dante and history did prompt me into looking up the details. I learned a few things of history that I did not know before. This is Mr. Brown's forte.
A good read but not spectacular.
