Dr. Kaler has the rare ability of being able to teach astronomy in a way that is easy to understand without making the subject banale or unscientific. His presentation is clear, coherent and I found the progression of the lectures to be neither too slow or too fast.
My only objection is that I would have loved to see a more comprehensive coverage of the geology and features of the planets, but this is a natural consequence of the length of the book.
A great listen for anyone interested in astronomy.
I found this work both interesting, well organised and much better suited to the audio format than other such works. The authors do a good job in separating fact, analysis and opinion. They are not afraid to give their own (diverging) views on the arab-israeli conflict, but emphasize that the listener should make up their own mind based on a solid knowledge of the history, which the book provideds the basis for. To anyone looking for a non biased history and not propaganda from the arabs or israelis this is a great start.
