This book is so complex, mathematically speaking, that no one other than a graduate level physicist is likely to understand it. This is made even more difficult in the audio format. However, the author still feels he has to explain how large a micron is and how many zeros come after the 10 in scientific notation! If you can understand this book, you don't need to listen to this book. If you want quantum theory dumbed down enough for a non-physicist to understand, there are much better books out there to listen to.
I almost gave up listening due to the narrator's voice and annoying way of doing character voices, especially women. I've listened to him with the Reacher novels and as much as I enjoy the books, almost gave up on those too. There are a lot of great readers out there and I can't imagine anyone preferring this narrator's style.
silly beyond belief! It's one thing to stretch reality for the sake of a story, it's another when brain death is a requirement for appreciating the plot. The author's previous books were along these lines so I probably should have known to pass on this one. It's a long book but I quit listening well before the end. Don't waste a precious credit on this loser.
As a review of the last month of the Civil War, this book has some interesting material. The annoying part is the delivery itself, poor grammar, language errors and the like. It would be better if the author had just narrated his book, I suspect. Still, I enjoyed the information and found it worth my time.
Moderately interesting, this book provides a general explanation of relativity which isn't bad nor is it very original. The book then becomes a superficial history of the development of the A-bomb laden with some revisionist opinions. Overall, the book lacks focus and readers can find better material on each of its several subjects.
