This Scientific American collection of renowned academic articles features Albert Einstein’s watershed April 1950 article on the theory of gravitation, an account of the newly published extension of the generalized theory of relativity against its historical and philosophical background. The other two articles also engage topics of modern physics, including a tribute to the great Einstein written shortly after his death, as well as an in-depth examination of neutrinos. Though these papers include a fair amount of scientific jargon, the come off as anything but dry due to the narrator’s upbeat and energetic delivery.

A fellow listener inclined to share my opinion on these productions. Maybe even inspire someone toward a powerful, or educational audiobook!
Scientific American has in the not so recent past been one of my favorite magazines, however in recent years due to the literary simpification of the publication to suit a wider more diverse audience I have strayed from its pages.
This audible.com delight will be refreshing as well as nostalgic for those readers who can enjoy quantum particle matters, and/or feel the same way about Scientific American as I have expressed in the first Paragraph.
This is a great look to the history of some of the greatest minds in this and last century. It shows the falibility of of the human mind but where one falls short another takes over and expands on the theory of Unifacation, Black Holes and the Birth of the Universe. A great listen.
