An enjoyable deviation from standard Non-Fiction

Short but sweet! Strangely, the pace of story and the wealth of information delivered in that short time seem to gracefully accentuate the fact that Einstein himself packed much into a seemingly short life... Thanks

excellent and thought provoking short piece

This short biographical piece is a bit history plus a bit Brief History of Time in that it shows Einstein's personal development and tries to make his ideas and their implications accessible to the average person. Some examples you've probably heard before, but these are ideas that only benefit from another view. Very good. Will listen again sometime soon. And occasionally Greene has a nice poetic turn of phrase that I like. These are enormous ideas and he's trying to educate us entertainingly.

Great story, irritating presentation.

I love physics and books about physics, and the story presented here is undeniably interesting. However I found the presentation irritating, with music constantly in the background. This is one that I would probably prefer in written form.

interesting but very short

I loved the story and the discussion but there just wasn't enough substance. More please.

Incredible!

An insightful, intelligent and elegant re-telling of Einstein's amazing life.

Awesome storytelling by Brian Green and characterisation by Paul Rudd. Stick around at the end of it for a killer interview about Einstein and the unifying theory between the two of them!
