I listen rather than read on train journeys as I can't stand being jostled by other travelers, and walking & listening is so easy

  • "A good listen, but not brilliant"

    Overall

    While this book is interesting, quite a lot of it is just "filler" to make the book larger - the constant wandering off subject, the fact that some of them don't NEED to make sense (Quantum Physics for one), and the amount of background unrelated information that's given just gets boring at times



    The book should have been done as an abridged version to trim out the fat, because the book itself just has a lot of wasted stuff that you just don't need to know, or is interesting but overall unrelated to the main topic



    If you have a spare credit and want something that is full of information, but you'll probably only ever listen to once, this is the book for you - I found myself listening while doing other things, so it was like background noise rather than something I'd concentrate on

    Science starts to get interesting when things don''t make sense. Even today, there are experimental results that the most brilliant scientists can neither explain nor dismiss. In the past, similar anomalies have revolutionised our world: in the 16th century, a set of celestial irregularities led Copernicus to realise that the Earth goes around the sun and not the reverse. In 13 Things That Don''t Make Sense, Michael Brooks meets thirteen modern-day anomalies that may become tomorrow''s breakthroughs.

  • "The Grand Design a great book but ..."

    6 of 8 helpful votes

    This is an excellent book, but the audio version read by Steve West is a let down. The publishers should know better (by now), in compiling audio books, just reading very fast (so that it can finish quickly -- why is the hurry) does not work well. Steve West's reading is like a running train (each compartment (i.e. sentence) seem to wobble in between and raises and plonk with the next. As the concepts described in the book needs understanding (i.e. putting together in mind analytically with the previously assimilated hard facts). So the running train with um-ha-ha would not help. I strongly suggest to buy the printed version of the book instead of this audio version.

    A Short History of Nearly Everything is Bill Bryson's quest to find out everything that has happened from the Big Bang to the rise of civilization - how we got from there, being nothing at all, to here, being us. His challenge is to take subjects that normally bore the pants off most of us and see if there isn't some way to render them comprehensible to people who have never thought they could be interested in science. It's not so much about what we know, as about how we know what we know.

    "It doesn't take an Einstein to understand modern physics," says Professor Wolfson at the outset of these 24 lectures on what may be the most important subjects in the universe: relativity and quantum physics. Both have reputations for complexity. But the basic ideas behind them are, in fact, simple and comprehensible by anyone. These dynamic and illuminating lectures begin with a brief overview of theories of physical reality starting with Aristotle and culminating in Newtonian or "classical" physics. After that, you'll follow along as Professor Wolfson outlines the logic that led to Einstein's profound theory of special relativity and the simple yet far-reaching insight on which it rests. With that insight in mind, you'll move on to consider Einstein's theory of general relativity and its interpretation of gravitation in terms of the curvature of space and time.From there, you'll embark on a dazzling exploration of how inquiry into matter at the atomic and subatomic scales led to quandaries that are resolved-or at least clarified-by quantum mechanics, a vision of physical reality so profound and so at odds with our experience that it nearly defies language.By bringing relativity and quantum mechanics into the same picture, you'll chart the development of fascinating hypotheses about the origin, development, and possible futures of the entire universe, as well as the possibility that physics can produce a "theory of everything" to account for all aspects of the physical world. But the goal throughout these lectures remains the same: to present the key ideas of modern physics in a way that makes them clear to the interested layperson.

    In the 16th century, Nicolaus Copernicus dared to go against the establishment by proposing that Earth rotates around the Sun. Having demoted Earth from its unique position in the cosmos to one of mediocrity, Copernicus set in motion a revolution in scientific thought. This perspective has influenced our thinking for centuries. However, recent evidence challenges the Copernican Principle, hinting that we do in fact live in a special place, at a special time, as the product of a chain of unlikely events.

    The ordinary atoms that make up the known universe - from our bodies and the air we breathe to the planets and stars - constitute only 5 percent of all matter and energy in the cosmos. The rest is known as dark matter and dark energy, because their precise identities are unknown. The Cosmic Cocktail is the inside story of the epic quest to solve one of the most compelling enigmas of modern science - what is the universe made of? - told by one of today's foremost pioneers in the study of dark matter.
