Educative series

Would you consider the audio edition of Infinite Monkey Cage, Series 6, 7, 8, and 9 to be better than the print version?

It is a radio programme

Any additional comments?

This series is very enjoyable to listen to, humorous at times and very informative. I have tried to listen on the radio but have missed several episodes so I have really enjoyed catching up on the ones I have missed. I have also re-listened to several to ensure I have understood some of the scientific facts

Not an book, but a podcast

I like how someone gave 1 star because it's a podcast. It is clearly stated in the description that it is a BBC Radio 4 show, concluding that his review states more about him/her than about this show.
Now to the point, it is a perfect introduction for teens into science, while still beeing fun for adults, it involves just enough of controversial points (not really controversial to a scientific mind) and enough funny things in order to captate one's attention. Personally would have loved to be a bit more math intensive, but you'll never get that from this kind of show. But it still is a lovely piece to listen to and have a laugh, while giving you a bit to think.

Amusing and intellectual!

A good mixture of interesting scientific facts and witty banter, coupled with fantastic guests.

I listen to your pod casts at work,

fantastic series

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I have recommended this to friends because it's great to hear science being discussed in a light, yet informative way.

What did you like best about this story?

Its a radio series, not a story, but the subjects covered are really fascinating.

What about Brian Cox and Robin Ince ’s performance did you like?

They are a great team, quite clearly enjoying their jobs.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made me think and also inspired me to find out more about science.

Any additional comments?

Recommend to anyone, even if you are not interested in science.

Great stuff

Really enjoyed this series. I think to go in just a bit more depth would have been welcome - perhaps that would have required slightly longer episodes.
