Dated, slow, tedious. Not what I was hoping for. A was initially disappointed that I couldn't get hold of the unabridged version but once I started listening to it I realised how fortunate I had been.
If you enjoyed the excellent "Chaos: Making a New Science" and "The Information: A History, a Theory, a Flood" also by James Gleick don't listen to this - it's not in the same league.
