This audiobook is at once good history, but, perhaps more important, it's good science writing. The book uses sources that range throughout history to show us the development of important scientific ideas and endeavors. The point is to have us appreciate the connections that scientists have made over time that still shape our world. Narrator Julian Elfer has a deep, rich English-accented voice that makes the words come alive. His brisk but appropriate pace allows us to listen and think about what we've just heard. Elfer varies his pitch and emphasizes words effectively to keep the thematic chapters interesting and engaging. He makes the audiobook both informative and accessible.
