ELECTRIC UNIVERSE The Shocking True Story of Electricity

by | Read by Del Roy

Contemporary Culture • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2005

ELECTRIC UNIVERSE shocks us to reality by reminding us where our modern world would be--without computers, cars, television, and cattle prods--if we hadn’t discovered and harnessed electricity. After the discoverers of the early nineteenth century play with magnets and batteries, we travel through the evolution of man’s understanding of the electron, ending with a look at our own nervous system. Del Roy’s mature and raspy voice sounds like wisdom itself, making a pleasant and important story fun to hear. Although a book about science can be dry, Roy uses changing inflections and a relaxing pace to create a conversational style likely to capture curious listeners.
