As one of the four forces we currently recognize in the Standard Model, gravity - although relatively weak - is trump card. It is the key to everything. Yet, despite all of this, our knowledge of gravity is incomplete. For example, where does this force come from? How does gravity propagate between objects? Do gravitons really exist? If so, why haven't we identified these hypothetical particles yet? How does gravity relate to space and time? Is gravity stronger in other (hidden) dimensions?
This essay takes a look at what is known about gravity and contains references to other work on this topic.

This voice actor is an insult to all things intelligent. The reader sounds like she is reading a dramatic play. I read terrible reviews about the reader but ignored them. Don't be me.
I was drooling by the end of this book and I don't think I absorbed any information. I'm still not sure what the content of this book was as the reader was nearly inaudible.
Very disappointing for audible.
Interesting, Informational, Entertaining
I enjoyed the information about the moon and gravity's effect on it and the earth.
I have listened to other performances by Irene. This one is done with a southern drawl, which seemed unexpected to me for a scientific subject. The different accent made it more entertaining and attention grabbing. It fit well with the subject matter since there are scattered throughout the book several humorous comments.
I had to chuckle at some of the humorous comments throughout the book. I hadn't expected the subject of gravity to have so much humor in it.
