THE PERFECT THEORY A Century of Geniuses and the Battle Over General Relativity

by | Read by Sean Runnette

History • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

This history of Einstein’s general theory of relativity clearly is written for the non-physicist. While it would help to have at least a nodding acquaintance with the subject, it isn’t imperative. The book is more like a series of mini-biographies than a critical examination of theories. And this approach works well in audio. Sean Runnette offers an able and even engaging narration that carries the sometimes complex material along. He pauses slightly before direct quotations to let listeners know when someone other than the author is speaking, and occasionally he gives foreign speakers a bit of an accent. The chapter breaks are logical and frequent enough that one can listen for a short or long period without loss of continuity. R.C.G. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2014]
