THE COPERNICUS COMPLEX Our Cosmic Significance in a Universe of Planets and Probabilities

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Caleb Scharf

Contemporary Culture • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

The narrator of this outstanding audiobook knows the text inside and out and gives a performance that keeps listeners engaged with its complex ideas. Nicolaus Copernicus’s discovery that the earth is not the center of the universe turned humanity’s worldview upside down. But recent scientific discoveries show that the earth is unique, the result of special, unlikely events. Astrophysicist, author, and narrator Caleb Scharf explains that there’s a happy medium between these two views. He reads his own text with a cheerful, warm English accent, and explains things with a lovely sense of humor. Even if you’ve never pondered Planet Earth’s place in the cosmos, this audiobook will delight you and leave you smarter than you were before listening to it. G.D.
