    Story
    (47)

    From the best-selling author of The Emperor’s New Mind and The Road to Reality, a groundbreaking book that provides new views on three of cosmology’s most profound questions: What, if anything, came before the Big Bang? What is the source of order in our universe? What is its ultimate future?

    Darkcoffee says: "Difficult, Awe-inducing and Fascinating"
    "Penrose makes cosmological concepts accessible"

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Cycles of Time to be better than the print version?

    An excellent book, especially if you're a fan of his classic work "The Road to Reality". He is not shy about mathematical equations or concepts and the lay person that invests the time to go through this book will be very well rewarded.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This audible version comes with a lengthy PDF file with Penrose's trademark hand drawn diagrams. His diagrams are probably some of the best tools I've ever seen to make difficult concepts accessible to the non-physicist or mathematician.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Narration was adequate.

  • Augustus: The Life of Rome's First Emperor

    Story
    (379)

    Caesar Augustus has been called history's greatest emperor. It was said he found Rome made of clay and left it made of marble. With a senator for a father and Julius Caesar for a great-uncle, he ascended the ranks of Roman society with breathtaking speed. His courage in battle is still questioned yet his political savvy was second to none. He had a lifelong rival in Mark Antony and a 51-year companion in his wife, Livia. And his influence extended perhaps further than that of any ruler who has ever lived.

    John says: "Outstanding!"
    "A riveting account of Augustus"

    Story

    Anthony Everitt's Augustus is one of the most developed and three dimensional portraits I've read on Caesar Augustus. Everitt is insightful without being pedantic, and not afraid to give his opinion in filling in the historical gaps. Another excellent biography that is as entertaining as his biography of Hannibal.
