THE BIG PICTURE On the Origins of Life, Meaning, and the Universe Itself

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Sean Carroll

Contemporary Culture • 17.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

Listening to theoretical physicist Sean Carroll narrate his own book is akin to hearing a brilliant college lecturer explain the mysteries of the universe. This audiobook looks at humanity’s understanding of the nature of life and our place in the universe, and it all makes perfect sense, thanks to the author’s sensible, grounded explanations. Carroll breaks these enormously deep subjects down into digestible pieces, which he explains in a friendly, conversational voice. His evocative writing, combined with his cheerful and clear narration, makes these complex subjects come to life even for listeners who have never contemplated the deep mysteries of the universe.
