    David Bodanis demystifies the world's most famous equation, explaining its science and bringing it to life. He makes clear the astonishing array of discoveries and consequences it made possible and its impact on our daily lives. At last, the masses can understand that Einstein did nothing less than open the door to the inner structure of the universe.

    Robert says: "A good introduction"
    "Cashman and Bodanis score!"
    Overall

    Narrator Dan Cashman chalks up another win as one of the finest in the field. Team Dan up with a good writer like Bodanis and you have an enjoyable and educational experience. This is what audiobooks are all about.

    The genre known as "pop" science often gets unfair treatment by professionals. Members of the scientific community forget it is OK to be entertained while learning. This audio program will not earn you a doctorate in physics but will stimulate your mind more than John Stossel ever could.

  • Kiss Me Like a Stranger: My Search for Love and Art

    Gene Wilder is one of the great comic actors who defined the 1970s and 1980s in movies. From his work with Woody Allen, to the rich group of movies he made with Mel Brooks, to his partnership on screen with Richard Pryor, Wilder's performances are still discussed and celebrated today.

    Elliott says: "Interesting for a number of factors."
    "An intimate portrait"
    Overall

    Gene bears all while recounting his life. Nothing is held back as his warmth and comic genius is woven into the fabric of the story. My expectations were high and they were exceeded. It was a wise choice to have Gene narrate the book and he pulls it off flawlessly.

    Gilder Radner does not consume the contents of the book. That was a shock but does not detract from the tale in the least. Also, Gene's interesting experience with Peter Sellers was a treat to hear. Confirms some of things often said about Sellers.

    Warning, there are some tear jerking moments in this book for the more sensitive types out there. It is very funny too, of course. That being said I highly recommend this book to any Wilder fan. You will gain a great deal of insight.
