Looking for a "quick and dirty" introduction to "the universe's greatest hits"? Writer David Bercovici takes on that task, covering 13.8 billion years--from the Big Bang to the arrival of humanity--in just a few hours. Narrator Jim Meskiman turns the material into an energetic science lecture, which is appropriate since a Yale course inspired the book. Meskiman's clear, nuanced delivery and Bercovici's writing elucidate in a fresh way. Listeners may find themselves pondering ideas such as their own births as atoms in giant stars. The reading moves briskly from topic to topic, so it's best listened to in short sessions. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2016]
