The content is top notch! The same basic questions are posed to each scientist, and their answers are thoughtful and inspiring, especially to see the commonalities...
The entire project though is marred by sub-standard production. The audio starts and stops abruptly. The editing of the back-and-forth of the interviews comes across as amateurish.
Worst of all is the occasional use of background music. This does nothing good for me. It makes the narration almost inaudible at some times, and is right out distracting at others.
The book presented interesting and relevant topics.
The interview format and background audio proved to be somewhat annoying.
I would not recommend this as a must listen book
The passion and child-like inquistiveness of these fine scientists is clearly apparent. And the interviewer asks some very interesting questions. However, the audio quality is quite poor.
Very interesting collection of interviews about many topics within science. I would rate this book higher if they had not added dramatic background music at many points in the book. If you like listening to live music recordings with clapping and cheering overriding the music then you might not share my view. But for me please keep to the story and drop the drama music.
