This is an entertaining and extensive collection of short essays by various scientific and social luminaries on their favorite theories of how the world works. It's a wonderful example of team narration, a real plus with this rapidly changing short essay format. There's a risk of tedious topic repetition in that much of the material deals with the same major scientific players of all time: Einstein, Newton, Galileo, Feynman, et al. This shortcoming is considerably relieved by the balanced gender mix. However, sometimes the transitions could be a bit more pronounced. Listen in batches; much of the material is so similar and the concise format so high speed that the combination can make it difficult to digest all the beauty and elegance.
