ABOUT TIME Cosmology, Time and Culture at the Twilight of the Big Bang

by | Read by David Drummond

Contemporary Culture • 13.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

Our lives are shaped by our understanding of time, and as that understanding changed over the eons, so did we. From an agrarian appreciation of the seasons through industrialization to today's digital world, time shapes the way we act and work. Now, with emerging theories of cosmology, our ideas of time are about to be reworked again. It’s weighty stuff, and listening to this book requires concentration. David Drummond offers a reading that relieves the ponderousness of the author’s writing without losing the work’s gravity. His even tone carries listeners along but won’t put them to sleep. The pacing is jarred a bit by the inclusion of the chapter subtitles. Little would have been lost by leaving them out, and the flow of the reading would have been improved.
