    Where did the universe come from? What was there before it? What will the future bring? And finally, why is there something rather than nothing? Krauss’ answers to these and other timeless questions, in a wildly popular lecture on YouTube, has attracted almost a million viewers. One of the few prominent scientists to have actively crossed the chasm between science and popular culture, Krauss reveals that modern science is indeed addressing the question of why there is something rather than nothing—with surprising and fascinating results.

    What disappointed you about A Universe from Nothing?

    His whining about religion and why God doesn't need to exist. Who cares? Just give us the science and theories about how the universe formed. If he had done that the book would have been enjoyable. I got really tired of him trying to convince me why I should stop believing in God, and telling me how much religion has derailed science.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Full House: The Spread of Excellence from Plato to Darwin by Stephen Jay Gould.


    What about Lawrence M. Krauss and Simon Vance ’s performance did you like?

    Voices and pace were okay.


    What character would you cut from A Universe from Nothing?

    Does not apply.

    What if you didn't have to have the stigma of being a "victim" even though you have been abused? I'm sharing my story because I would like to be an inspiration to other people that have had abuse in their life - whether it is emotional, physical, psychological, physical, and/or sexual. I'd like to share some of the tools that allowed me to create a totally different possibility for my life beyond anything I could have imagined. And, I don't claim to have any answers, so trust what you know. What if you could create a totally different possibility of joy and ease for your life?

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    No one at all. This is most likely the worst book ever written. Please unwrite it.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    The Age of Spiritual Machines.


    What didn’t you like about Linda Wasil’s performance?

    She was reading her own book like a third grader. It was horrible, choppy and boring. It was absolutely excruciating and I couldn't even finish it.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Beyond the Stigma of Abuse?

    The whole book. It is worse than nails on a chalkboard.


    Any additional comments?

    Why was this book even written? It is the autobiography of a person whose life is more boring than my own. Do not buy.
