Professor Aczel's audiobook comes fully loaded with a rich vocabulary and new ideas. It's a stunning and humbling study of the cosmos from the Big Bang to whatever. Although there are some awesome mathematical formulas and terminology included, the genre is a history of science for listeners seeking quality. The biographies of the great minds surrounding Einstein are blended into an entertaining, yet intellectual, history with a slant that only a scientist would assume. The velvet-voiced Kent Broadhurst uses the refined voice and rhythm swings of a good storyteller, sliding with ease from the theories presented at meetings to the guests' memories of what they drank afterward.
