I felt like the first chapter or two of this book was slow, and I was initially disappointed. However, once you get past that, the book is fascinating. If you find the book slow at first, keep going, it gets better and better.
This book covers Einstein's personal life and science. If you find the scientific descriptions particularly interesting, you probably also enjoy Brian Greene's books. In this book, the explanations of Einstein's work are based on how Einstein himself explained it. Although it makes sense that the author choose that approach, I think Brian Greene's explanations are clearer and simpler because he isn't limited to thought experiments that Einstein himself did.
Overall, though, I highly recommend this book.
I listened to the first 1.5 hours of this audiobook. I found it very disappointing. If you are interested in reading a 'Navy SEALS are really tough' book, you will enjoy it.
I had been hoping for a survival narrative. One where the facts of the events are so amazing that they are inspirational in themselves, without a lot of hyperbole from the author. Something like 'Into Thin Air'. This book is not a survival narrative. If you look on Amazon, you will find a whole genre of books describing special forces training and toughness in hyperbolic terms. This book is more like those.
