THE GREAT UNKNOWN Seven Journeys to the Frontiers of Science

by | Read by Marcus du Sautoy

Contemporary Culture • 14.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

Marcus du Sautoy narrates his tour of seven "edges" of scientific knowledge with infectious enthusiasm, chasing the limits of what science can and can't reveal. When quoting others, du Sautoy employs different voices, and some of his accent work is uneven. But, overall, his genuine passion for science comes through, most powerfully when he speaks about his own discipline, mathematics. While it can be a chore for the listener to follow equations read aloud or to imagine shapes outside of three dimensions, Professor du Sautoy is an amiable guide, helping novices understand the concepts well enough so that we can apprehend what it is that even geniuses cannot understand.
