Publisher's Summary

The Speed of Time is the most unusual book on popular science that you will listen to. The world you live in is strange, and as you read this, you exist in other places at the same time. Do not regret having missed the chance to realize your dreams, for you may just have fulfilled it in another universe.

  • Are the trillions of atoms that make you, nothing but vibrations in 10 dimensions? 
  • Is it true that we are all connected with each other? 
  • Can you go into the future to change the present? 
  • Why do scientists and philosophers struggle with the concept of time? 
  • Can science explain consciousness through physics? 
  • Is our fate driven by the underlying randomness in nature? 
  • Is nature hiding the best-kept secrets which can never be unraveled by humans? 

The Speed of Time approaches the most complex and esoteric theories of science in lucid, clear, and simple language and in the style of a thriller, leaving you wanting more while addressing questions through the enigmatic theories in Physics such as Quantum Mechanics, Einstein's Theory of Relativity, Time, Chaos, and much more. 

Just start listening, and you will not put it down.

Highly recommend this Title!

This is an excellent book to have in your collection no matter what your age or interest. I am 49 and a home school mom with various ages and abilities including disabled adults. This book explains concepts in physics in the simplest terms that my 9 year old even understood. I relearned things that I had long forgotten and enjoyed hearing how simple Science can be. I received this book for my unbiased review and will cherish it forever!

"This book was given to me for free at my request

"This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review." I really liked it, I listened to it on my way to work and coming home from work, it is only a 20 minutes journey on the metro so I used that time to listen to this audiobook. I have to say that it doesn´t go deep explaining each topic but it explains enough to leave you thinking about it, kind of like an interesting conversation you would have with a friend that is teaching you something new over some beers! I think that´s the best description of the book. From there, if you want to learn a bit more then you can search for more information online or other books. With this content at least now you would have some knowledge of the topic to decide whether you want to investigate more or just leave it "as it is" (it doesn´t deal with formulas or anything complex, just the definitions, history and current status of research on each topic with examples).

Thorough Synopsis on Modern Physics

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. The explanation of quantum mechanics was unlike I've heard before and introduced new concepts that I hadn't heard of before to my delight! It gave a broader depth of knowledge after reading the particle at the end of the universe. I've personally suggested this audio book to a friend of mine who is interested in learning more about physics. Put this one on your reading list!

Maybe good for people who don't question things...

I applaud anyone who tries to educate. However, I have several issues with this book. First, it's simply too long. As you listen, you'll notice the same ideas are repeated over and over. This is most evident in the first two chapters. While I understand that repetition is key in most learning environments, It makes for an annoying audiobook, The first two chapters could have been much shorter if not for the continuous abuse of a deceased equine. Which brings me to my next problem, I just don't feel that this subject translates well into an audiobook. This book may be targeted towards individuals that have no desire to question what they are being told. This is the information you receive and there is no more to be added. No downloadable pdf with references, diagrams, or anything else. I found myself with so many questions by the end but was offered no path to have these questions answered. I would urge the author to produce a PDF to companion this audiobook to help guide visual learners as well as offer references that may take some of the concepts a little further and explain the little things such as "observation methods" and point towards some of the experiments that have backed up the science explained within. I know it sounds like I'm providing a harsh review, but I really feel a companion document would make this book a winner even with my repetition complaint. The narration was nothing special. But given the subject, I don't know if a better performance could be asked of anyone. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Never has quantum mechanics been so easy.

*I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.* Book: 4.5 Narrator: 2.5 I absolutely loved how easily understandable quantum mechanics are made in this book. This is a non-fiction that brings a regularly hard topic to the general public. It uses examples from daily life to do so and achieves its goal masterfully, even using some nice jokes. However, I'd love to buy a physical copy of this one. The narrator doesn't make it easy to understand. He doesn't tell you the story as if it was his or he was talking to you, making you have to make a bigger effort to engage. He doesn't keep a steady speed, sometimes (too often) he's reading and has doubts, which kicks you out of the topic given is pauses. It is obsiously much more evident when you listen at a higher speed.

Make a complex topic accessible

Well written and narrated. If you're a physics buff but didn't take Calculus III then you'll enjoy this book a lot. The narrator was especially good, usually this kind of material can be very dry, but he kept it engaging.

What separates mind from matter?

The Speed of Time presents some of the more fascinating and esoteric aspects of math and physics, from Einstein's relativity to quantum mechanics and string tbeory, in a way suitable for the job scientist to begin to grasp and, more importantly, wonder. Because this is a book designed to get people thinking. For the uninitkated, it is not an easy read but well worth it: so many wonders. The contents have been checked for accuracy, apparently, so even some of the more exotic seeing observations should be reliable (although I was surprised to hear '21' being given as an example of a prime number). The narration by Doug Briggs is fine, if irritating, seemingly trying too hard to be.The friendly informant. However, overall, the book is there to give a taster for the layman of a very strange world of wonders within which we all live and mostly just accept.Sent My thanks to the rights holder of The Speed of Time, who,at my request, freely gifted me with a complimentary copy. It has been the most accessible book of it's type that this uninitiated reader has been able to begin to understand. Highly recommended to anyone fascinated by the micro and macro rules of the universe around, and within, us all
