    The laws of thermodynamics drive everything that happens in the universe. From the sudden expansion of a cloud of gas to the cooling of hot metal - everything is moved or restrained by four simple laws. Written by Peter Atkins, one of the world's leading authorities on thermodynamics, this powerful and compact introduction explains what these four laws are and how they work, using accessible language and virtually no mathematics.

    Diane Walter says: "Accessible, but needs the figures"

    A very good introduction but short, this is however the nature of the .book. What it aimed to accomplish, it did.. The narration was brilliant.

    Locked away, remote from the rest of the body in its own custom-built casing of skull bone, with no intrinsic moving parts, the human brain remains a tantalising mystery. But now, more than ever before, we have the expertise to tackle this mystery - the last 20 years have seen astounding progress in brain research. Susan Greenfield begins by exploring the roles of different regions of the brain.

    Story

    This is an excellent short book on the brain. The structure and functions of the brain are logically developed by including early ideas and scientific exploration of the functioning of the brain .

    I listened to the book twice to see if it is my lack of understanding that hampers my full comprehension of the book but I think a downloadable PDF of the brain structure with parts clearly labeled will make the book instantly understandable. This suggestion hopefully should not detract from what is truly an excellent book
    Fiona Shaw's reading was perfect. Her enunciation of each word and the tempo of her reading made listening truly enjoyable.
