Excellent well done

Excellent and well executed. We need more books explaining things in simple terms as well as famous extraordinary people and their lives.

Mind-blowing #Audible1

Great popularized explanation of latest developments and speculation in Cosmology. Simple to follow without over-simplification. Great metaphors to help explain concepts.

Great Listen!

Want to make Science History fun? Invite Paul Rudd.
already a fan of Brian Greene's work as it makes complicated theories more relatable to the public, but the inclusion of Marvel's Ant-Man made it all the more enjoyable.
Hope there's more!

💎 immersive and scientifically credible story

Hidden gem. ✅ scientifically accuracy ✅ engaging storytelling ✅professional audio production

The author is a physicist with significant scientific theories of his own (google it yourself to judge). Don't sleep on this book introducing you to a universal theory about the physical world we live in as understood by a credible theoretical physicist who treats this subject as a lifelong mission.

Theatrically entertaining enough to listen on repeat! Immersive! i can still picture some of the scenes.

A bit too dramatic?

I am not a physicist, so was looking for something that would be an explainer of the work of Einstein. It is that, and part biography, but I felt this was more performative, creating drama where non really existed.

Also, the background music was instrusive, and at times I would find I would miss words.
