"Enjoyed Very Much"
Pitched to entertain a 60-year-old IT consultant who found it continually surprising and informative. Edwin Newman's reading is marvellous. Annoying only because I often listen to audio books when I go to sleep - but this one keeps me awake too long.
"Science in Antiquity"
This book provides half-hour narratives tracing ideas about cosmology and the nature of things from the Sumerians on. Pitched to about a 6th grade level. OK if you know absolutely nothing about ancient history. If you know a bit about Thales, Plato and Aristotle, skip it.
