The author's view of this work as an essay gives him abundant latitude in introducing his opinions. He examines the way new ideas in science replace the old, coining the term "paradigm shift." In his examination of discoveries, he points out that the famous ones—for example, electricity and oxygen—were a gradual shift in our understanding. Narrator Dennis Holland fits the performance task to perfection. His smooth inflections and ease with the scientific vocabulary make the intellectual journey a pleasure. With lots for listeners to absorb, he chooses a pace just right to allow the author's plethora of complex ideas to sink in. J.A.H. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2009]
