ATOM LAND A Guided Tour through the Strange (and Impossibly Small) World of Particle Physics

by | Read by Wayne Forester

Contemporary Culture • 6.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Particle physics is not easy to understand, but Butterworth's geography metaphor offers a simple frame of reference to cling to. Wayne Forester narrates in a perfectly appropriate affable style that sounds more like friendly storytelling than scientific explanation. His pace is steady, giving the listener a bit of time to process the information. The text includes only a few equations, and they do not intrude often enough to spoil the listening experience. Some of the scientists quoted are characterized unnecessarily with accents, but those are rare deviations in this solidly clear presentation of the quantum world.
