Tindle accomplishes one of the primary tasks of an audiobook reader: He sounds like what we might imagine the author to sound like. Listening to this audiobook, one feels as if one has entered the classroom of a popular physics professor. With a clear tenor voice, Tindle never falters in this reading, even when tackling the many difficult physics terms relating to the search for one theory to unify the forces of the universe; electromagnetism, gravity, the strong force and the weak force. His pace seems a bit fast at times, but that may be because he is discussing theoretical physics, which is difficult for any listener to consume. Weinberg, a Nobel laureate, aims in this book to explain attempts at the unification theory that eluded Einstein to a non-specialist audience, and he generally succeeds in this attempt.
