    Our intuition about how things should behave is usually right in the everyday world. We see the baseball soar in the air, arc, drop, and lie stationary on the ground. Through data gathered by our senses and basic knowledge of the laws of classical mechanics, the motion of a ball makes perfect sense. But enter the world of the tiniest particles on earth—the motion of electrons, the shapes of molecules—and everything we think we know about the world radically changes.

    "Bad choice for an audio book!"
    Overall

    I seriously wonder why anyone thought this would make a good audio book. Far too many references to figures for audio and all of the equations being rattled off without any thought of translating the jargon into English was enough to make me finally give up by chapter 8. Definitely not a good book to listen to while commuting! Maybe with the accompanying reference guide I will try again but if I have to sit and flip through pages of diagrams then I may as well be reading the hard copy.
