The stories of the mathematicians was interesting. Some very colorful characters
There is a shoe-horning of the material into a psuedo-spiritual concept of infinity in the kaballah. Infinity is mind-blowing enough without trying to fit it into a pre-existing concept. I don't think the the modern mathematicians were trying to explain the 'mathematics' in the Kaballah or vice versa. Fortunately that was a rhetorical tool and not the main subject of the book
I liked the lot of details in the most interesting parts. I did not like the lots of details in the less interesting parts.the story remained interesting even after the building of the atomic bomb. The whole post WW2 development of the nuclear bomb industry is laid clear. On one side Oppenheimer was a genius, but was very naive
Narrators voice had an 'intellectual' tone. Good match for the subject matter, but a bit dry for a loooooong story
Yes, this book covers interesting new ground, and has a summary of Diamond's views
The Moral Animal by Robert Wright has a similar theme, it has less original insights, but goes further along the evolutionary line of thinking. If you like this book and it s viewpoint, you'll love the Moral Animal
Some of Jared Diamond's character comes out in this, a slightly more personal book.
The story is amazing and true.
The narration was presented from the inside of the campaigns. Which gave a fly on the wall perspective
The best inside scoop of the 2008 campaign
Pretty high, easy to listen to
More humor than expected, very dry humor.
Narrator was good, story moved quickly. Lots of dry, wry humor.
