A Nobel laureate in physics (quantum theory, mostly), Wilczek delivers a passionate synopsis of the meeting between numbers and the physical world--how one describes and meshes with the other. As a narrator, he rambles through this history of ideas with obvious sincerity but little pizzazz. It's plain to the listener that this was not a single recording session as slight variations in pitch are noticeable. But one can learn something here: simplicity out of chaos, and fundamental universal truths. D.R.W. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2016]
