Yet Another Brief History of Science
This is largely just one more in a long line of books that spend almost the entire book presenting a layman’s history of science followed by a short presentation of some mildly novel idea. Here the history is just OK (with a recurring bit of suggesting each theory’s T-shirt). This was followed by a couple of chapters relating religion to a Theory Of Everything. That was about it. I expected a thoughtful analysis of what a TOE might mean for mankind, or the forms a TOE might take, or something else thoughtful and interesting regarding possible TOEs. Instead it mentioned that string theory might, maybe, someday, yield a TOE (then in the afterword notes that string theory has more recently lost much of its momentum).
This was also mostly written quite a few years ago with a few new notes and a new afterword.
Overall I did not find much to dislike, but also little to like.

The way history about this topic should be taught
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I loved this!! A great review of the history of the parts that have lead up to where we are now in string theory and physics. I will even recommend this for my son when he gets to physics is his schooling.
