IN A FLIGHT OF STARLINGS The Wonders of Complex Systems

by | Read by Stephen Graybill

Contemporary Culture • 3.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Dry text collides with a flat, bland narration to sink any chance of audibly enjoying this presentation of the author's Nobel Prize-winning research into complex systems ranging from the atomic to the planetary scale. Stephen Graybill narrates in a steady, monotonous tone. Although properly executed, his pronunciation of the audiobook's many Italian names and phrases is slow and awkward, a notable weakness since this audiobook is written by an Italian author. Physics experts will find most chapters too basic; sadly, the author fails to enliven his research in a way that might resonate with lay listeners.
