It's unfortunate that books this technical are allowed to be made into audio books. I have tried and tried to listen and understand this book but the in-depth study of astro/nuclear physics isn't made for audiobooks; that is, unless you are an astro/nuclear physicist.

"You cannot go on seeing through things for ever. The whole point of seeing through something is to see something through it. . . . If you see through everything, then everything is transparent.

—C. S. Lewis
