After listening to "The Fabric of the Cosmos", I could not think of a question it did not answer. I can recall only a few instances where a 'relisten' was necessary to understand the concepts/principles presented by the author - considering the subject matter and my ignorance on the topics, this is amazing to me.
The book builds the readers understanding gradually, and presents this intricate material logically and in a gripping package.
The book presents some important messages, albeit in very odd packages. The overall message of the book is scantily veiled by a side-message - the author is a good guy. The more granular concepts are packed in semi-interesting real life stories, that are spun hard for effect.
Not a book I would recommend to those looking for an uplifting/inspiring 'good life' book.
While the author hits a few wonderous and clever chords, the book is unfortunately full of mostly obvious observations and often predictable conclusions. The countless experiments the author describes in detail are not impressive, nor are the details of there design at all interesting. I love science, and the study of human nature. If you do to, you might find this worth the time to listen.
