    Perhaps the greatest physicist of the second half of the 20th century, Richard Feynman changed the way we think about quantum mechanics, the most perplexing of all physical theories. Here Lawrence M. Krauss, himself a theoretical physicist and best-selling author, offers a unique scientific biography: a rollicking narrative coupled with clear and novel expositions of science at the limits.

    Thomas C. Miller says: "Richard Feynman's Science"
    "Beautifully writen and read."

    Where does Quantum Man rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Top ten.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Quantum Man?

    Dr. Lawrence Krauss is a fan, advocate and historian of science. His reverence for Richard Feynman is apparent and contagious.


    Any additional comments?

    I will buy any book written and or read by Larence Krauss.

    Richard "The Ice Man" Kuklinski led a double life beyond anything ever seen on The Sopranos, becoming one of the most notorious professional assassins in American history while hosting neighborhood barbecues in suburban New Jersey. Now, after 240 hours of face-to-face interviews with Kuklinski and his wife and daughters, author Philip Carlo tells his extraordinary story.

    What disappointed you about The Ice Man?

    The narrator has the enthusiasm and interest of a person reading tax code. He almost wheezes in between long sentences.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I am fascinated by Kuklinski. Normally I would hang on every word but this book is so poorly read I couldn't wait for it to be over.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Michael Prichard?

    Anyone would be an upgrade.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Ice Man?

    I don't think the problem is with the book, I just think it was poorly read.

    Would you listen to The Opie and Anthony Tribute to Patrice O’Neal – Segment 2 again? Why?

    Anyone who ever laughed at Louie CK, Chris Rock, George Carlin, Richard Pryor. Patrice's name deserves to be considered an equal to the artists I've listed. The world was just a sadder place once we lost this philosopher.

    What made the experience of listening to The Opie and Anthony Tribute to Patrice O’Neal – Segment 1 the most enjoyable?

    O'Neal gave the O and A show many hours of amazing radio in turn this show gave this genius a platform with no restrictions. I was one of thousands who cried when Patrice passed away. I was sad he was gone and selflessly, even sadder that the world lost such a rare artist.
