I highly recommend Michael Brooke's book about the patently absurd within our midst. The things in life that really don't make sense in science yet still elude clear explanation.
This books strength is making often complex postulation into complete sense to me as a reader. Brooks makes his statements in an entertaining & above all accessible fashion.
The biggest compliment that I can give is that Brooks writes in a fashion akin to a hero of mine Carl Sagan. Whilst using his own style he challenges the scientific status quo with great aplomb & I dare say with a little glee too! From telling us one moment that the medical industry are pulling the wool over our eyes to telling us that were short changed on human reproduction! As professional & as solid as his claims are you cannot help to read between the lines to see the enthusiasm in his arguments. Which besides being deeply thought provoking is thoroughly entertaining.
Matt Addis's narration is enjoyable & an appropriate choice for this audiobook. It is a weighty tomb coming in at a running time of over 8hrs but highly recommended & it will forever challenge your concept of the universe.
A very interesting overview of these topics, with a good proportion of unknown unknowns.
Takes the listener through the evolution of current thinking to the brink of the current uncertainty. As it is exploring the edges of our current scientific understanding, it provides more of a sketch than an engineering blueprint of the issues; but no criticism there -- if you do want a fully rigorous exposition, the Journal articles are out there somewhere.
Not light listening, so best done while undistracted. Only reservation is one that applied to this medium as a means of delivering technical material, rather than this particular book -- it's harder to rehear than reread when you haven't fully taken something in.
Great narration: good rhythm and conveys a sense of authority over the material.
All in all, walking the dog has rarely been so interesting.
