The book's title, "Entanglement," refers to a phenomenon that Aczel admits is the hardest to understand in all of physics. The mastery of this bizarre concept depends upon our comprehension of space and time, down to the very smallest amounts of energy and mass--quantum mechanics. The complicated experiments and mathematics presented may go over the heads of listeners, but the biographical story of the entanglement of the greatest minds of the twentieth century (Bohr, Young, Einstein, Schrödinger, and Heisenberg) in the evolution of modern physical theory gives the audiobook historical appeal. Henry Leyva's pleasing voice, comfortable pace, and skill with scientific vocabulary make him a perfect choice to read heavy science. J.A.H.
