This is a well-narrated piece of pop-science. Hard core science junkies may want to steer clear since the robust storytelling is this audiobooks strong point. If you are not adept at astronomy but want a gentle and entertaining introduction this is the audiobook for you. An enjoyable and breezy experience for those not wanting to get mired in scientific jargon.
Fifty percent entertainment, fifty percent academic. It is a rare balance never before acheived with such perfection. You will not finish this with an expert view of economics but you will certainly enjoy the ride.
This title requires a complete re-work of the audio. For the price of the audiobook it is a necessity that they do so. The book itself is of paramount importance and should be read by everyone before leaving high school. This is a foundation document that should be preserved with more respect.
I dislike works of fiction and would not have purchased this had I known this was primarily fiction but enjoyed the book anyway. The events in this book are not far-fetched to anyone who has survived addiction. Though this title has been battered by every media outlet it still has some merit.
The narrration is very good and the story is gritty.
A very interesting audiobook presented in a very professional manner. This was a real pleasure to listen two. The original text is well-crafted and narrated with the same care. If you have no training or academic background in math you can still get a great deal out of this. I've scored, and continued to score, poorly in math classes but loved this recording.
My mistake was not listening to a sample of the narration before purchasing. The dryness that the material is delivered overshadows the quality of the content. Please encourage the publisher to perform a do-over.
The first hour is inexcusably poor and any $39 audio editing program could fix it. What you lose in that hour is the first layer of the foundation of physics that Feynman lays down. What you get after that first hour is pure magic. Hearing the actual voice of Feynman confirms what many of his peers said about him. His vigor, humor, and genius shine throughout.
Feynman is a cultural phenom and intellectual giant. This audiobook takes a look inside one of the greatest minds of modern times. The narration is delivered in a strong performance with expert care given to every nuance. Only the exasperating detail of the NASA debacle keeps this from being a five out of five. Too much time was dedicated to the disaster.
