Publisher's Summary

An examination of the Scientific Revolution that shows how the mechanistic world view of modern science has sanctioned the exploitation of nature, unrestrained commercial expansion, and a new socioeconomic order that subordinates women.

Very awkward narration

Not trying to be mean, but I actually thought it might be an auto generated computer voice until I checked. Jones has a perfectly nice voice, but the cadence and intonation is extremely distracting and honestly difficult to listen to.

Great information; Bland narration

I usually prefer audiobooks with a straightforward narration, but this was too monotone for me. I don't know how many times I said, "Alexa, rewind two minutes" because I found my mind wandering. I ended up purchasing the e-book and finished reading this the old-fashioned way.

relevant still for today

an interesting overview of the history of science in the western world. I didn't particularly enjoy the narration though
