As a species, we have an extraordinary ability to create works of art that elevate, expand and transform what it means to be human. The novels of Henry James can communicate the inner world of one human being to another. The music of Wagner or Schubert takes us on an emotional roller-coaster ride as we give ourselves up to their sublime sounds. These are the expressions of what Marcus du Sautoy calls ‘the creativity code’.

This has been my most anticipated title since Prof du Sautoy’s ‘what we cannot know’. I’ve really enjoyed the content of this book and I love the authors ability to communicate the story of AI in such an engaging way. When I saw that the book wasn’t to be narrated by him I was shocked as his performance in What we cannot know had received such wide acclaim. I don’t understand why publishers and perhaps Audible just don’t seem to get it that we want the author to narrate books. Disappointed with a narrator who can’t even pronounce the authors name correctly at the start and adds none of Tehran humour that the author lyrically added to his previous title.

Britain's most famous mathematician takes us to the edge of knowledge to show us what we cannot know. Science is king. Every week headlines announce new breakthroughs in our understanding of the universe, new technologies that will transform our environment, new medical advances that will extend our lives. Science is giving us unprecedented insight into some of the big questions that have challenged humanity ever since we've been able to formulate those questions.

Sheer enjoyment listening to Prof du Sautoy's audiobook. I have read every mainstream book he has written but being able to listen to his wonderful and expressive voice takes it to another level. This is a masterpiece which will have many many relistens .
