Audible Editor Reviews

Unlike Stanley Kubrick’s satirical film, this story of power and politics and mass annihilation is true. The Real Dr. Strangelove is a dramatized performance that recounts the life of Hungarian physicist Edward Teller, the highly controversial figure who’s also known as "the father of the H-bomb", the precursor to the atomic bomb developed by his friend turned philosophical rival Robert Oppenheimer.

Narrated with cool and quick delivery by Simon Templeton, Joe Spano, and John de Lancie, and recorded in front of a live audience, this audio allows the listener to convincingly delve deep into Teller’s complicated and fascinating life.
