    What actually happens when the words, "beam me up, Scottie" are uttered? What "warps" when something travels at warp speed? Internationally renowned theoretical physicist and educator Lawrence M. Krauss provides matter-of-fact scientific explanations of the physics of Star Trek in this highly creative and informative guide for both the devoted Trekkie and the physics novice.

    "Interesting Book. Quite Technical"
    Overall

    This was an interesting book to read/listen too. It was quite technical and discussed the actual physics behind many of the technical innovations suggested by the various series. Not only does the author do a good job of explaining the Series reasons for many of these things to work, but he will also delve into actual physics that we understand at the time this book was written and suggest how some of these things may be possible, or whether they may in fact be impossible, or improbable.

    The audiobook seems to have some problems in the fact that you miss some drawings or illustrations that might have been available to view had I had the printed copy. Occasionally the author will refer to one of these illustrations or drawings that he assumes you to have seen. This did not deter from my enjoyment of the book however.

    The author does a good job of using analogy or layterms, and takes the time to define many terms to allow any reader to have a good basis for understanding much of the physics referred to in this book.

    It won't win any awards, but it made a short trip for me, more enjoyable (much to the chagrin of my wife and children in the car with me).
