Any educated person might be intimidated by this title and miss out on a tasty concoction of education and entertainment. The author's knack for simplification, organization, and presentation of these fascinating stories about discoveries makes us feel as if we know an intimate part of the discoverers. Dan Cashman's slightly sandy voice keeps the perfect pace and inflection to make good nonfiction more interesting. When concepts become a little complicated, he goes slowly, sounding as comfortable with the scientific vocabulary as the author. A nice plus not usually found in audiobooks are references to a Web site for graphics and amplification of some deeper subjects. J.A.H. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 02]
