Very well told, read by the author.
Shut your eyes, (if you are not driving) and you will be huddled against the night chill, peering through an eyepiece and listening to one of astonomy's best storytellers. If you lived next door to Timothy Ferris, and went out in your backyard stargazing with him every clear night, this book would be the soundtrack. When you tell someone about a passage of the book, you will almost want to begin the sentence, "I have a friend that is an astronomer, and he told me a story about..." The author's description of an evening with Patrick Moore, is alone, worth the price of admission.
If you were thinking, "I'm looking for a good audio book, something I will really enjoy. Maybe want to listen to twice in a row. I wonder what is out there?" Consider this my gift to you. A big fat signpost that reads, "This is it. Start downloading" Prepare for a very enjoyable "listen". You will actually ENJOY commuting to work for the next week or so!
