Story
Were it not for the calculus, mathematicians would have no way to describe the acceleration of a motorcycle or the effect of gravity on thrown balls and distant planets, or to prove that a man could cross a room and eventually touch the opposite wall. Just how calculus makes these things possible and in doing so finds a correspondence between real numbers and the real world is the subject of this dazzling book by a writer of extraordinary clarity and stylistic brio.

Story
You're wasting time listening to the standard advice about learning math. You can't continue with "random acts of learning" as you study simple math, calculus and statistics formulas  at least not for long. The truth is that learning math and remembering numbers can be incredibly simple. You just need to know how.

Story
Math is not only the game of numbers but also the language of nature. As a matter of fact, it has been established through research that the more we understand our universe, the more we discover interesting mathematical connections. For instance, flowers have spirals that are carefully lined up in a special sequence of numbers commonly referred to as Fibonacci numbers. This sequence can be studied, understood, and generated.

Story
Bertrand Russell wrote that mathematics can exalt "as surely as poetry". This is especially true of one equation: ei(pi) + 1 = 0, the brainchild of Leonhard Euler, the Mozart of mathematics. More than two centuries after Euler's death, it is still regarded as a conceptual diamond of unsurpassed beauty. Called Euler's identity, or God's equation, it includes just five numbers but represents an astonishing revelation of hidden connections.

The Order of Time
 By: Carlo Rovelli
 Narrated by: Benedict Cumberbatch
 Length: 4 hrs and 19 mins
 Unabridged

Overall

Performance

Story
In lyric, accessible prose, Carlo Rovelli invites us to consider questions about the nature of time that continue to puzzle physicists and philosophers alike. For most listeners, this is unfamiliar terrain. We all experience time, but the more scientists learn about it, the more mysterious it appears. We think of it as uniform and universal, moving steadily from past to future, measured by clocks. Rovelli tears down these assumptions one by one, revealing a strange universe where, at the most fundamental level, time disappears.

Probably will sink in after five or six times thru
Is there anything you would change about this book?
For the price, it is great. It might should be longer or more in depth but then it would cost more.
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
It is a little dry but there are not many math books on here as of now.
What three words best describe James Powers’s voice?
Straightforward, easy, fast.
Do you think Algebra, Trigonometry, and Statistics needs a followup book? Why or why not?
Sure, hopefully as cheap again.
Any additional comments?
It seems to be the perfect book to throw on when I cannot decide which book to do next. I do not really care if I absorb it through each time; repeated usage will do the trick. Quick and painless but overall helpful.

horrible, did not learn a thing
What would have made Algebra, Trigonometry, and Statistics better?
to not talk through problems like one should already know or understand it.
If one did already understand, to talk through each step.
A narrator with more energy, less boring voice. Sounds like he is dying
