Simply the best audiobook I heard on the subject. Very complete, concise and updated to the latest findings. May be hard to follow at the last chapters for a layman like me but with repeated listening I truly learnt a lot from this.
The content is very interesting but getting through it can be rather painful. This is the worst narration that I've ever stumbled upon in an audiobook which is unacceptable for a book this expensive (the most expensive in its category at the time of buying). It's read too fast with no regard for the listener learning, which is odd in a book about psychology that covers learning.
I was very disappointed when I first bought it but after listening to it multiple times, I've come to feel satisfied with the content, hence the 3 stars.
It was a disappointment for me, although I think that your satisfaction might depend on your expectations. I was expecting this to be centered on the philosophical and mathematical problem of infinity but the bulk of it is about the people involved. There was still some interesting material for me but it was just too few and buried too deep within all the "filler" (for me of course, you might find the rest interesting). I had to force myself not to give up on it many times so it wasn't a pleasant experience.
This is a great book for everyone with an interest in philosophy. I've read many books about many subjects in philosophy and one thing that usually made me give up on them was the fact that most of them are books of history of philosophy. This book was exactly what I was looking for, it tackles the questions themselves and the history, names and quotes are only there to provide the references. It's very well written and narrated, I never had trouble understanding it and I don't even speak English natively, it's never dull, the concepts flow very well and I learned a lot from it.
