I really enjoyed this biography. Not only did it bring to light Galileo, but also the political environment in which he had to deal with. If you like science, history and religion then I feel you will enjoy this audio book.

Well written, narrated, badly edited
Highly recommend to history buffs interested in the period, science, or religion. If you are catholic, the author does not treat the church kindly then or now but unless your skin is quite thin I do not think it offensive. It is a good read even if history is not your interest.
The narration is third person and is handled well by Riggenbach. The editing is problematic. Long spaces between recording sessions, inconsistent sound volumes and quality, and minor extraneous sounds combine to be a distraction in what would otherwise be an excellent listen.
