I was disappointed in this audio book. For no reason other that is was not clear from the precis that is was a revision of the original "A Brief History of Time". I can't fault the material and the 5 minutes or so of audio were up to the usual standard. But it leaves a poor taste in my mouth to spend a audio book credit on an audiobook that I, essentially, already had. Well done on Stephen Hawking for making his material more accessable to a broader audience. But I understood enough of the original that I would never have felt the need to purchase both and I just wish it had been made more clear. If you have not read (or heard) ther original this is probably the version to get but if you have and you enjoyed it you won't get any more out of this updated release.

Great information, as is to be expected but a lot of references to God and a feeling that in some ways efforts have been made to make the information more acceptable to religious folk!

I enjoyed this book. The world of modern physics is plotted with thumbnails of key protagonists. At times I had to re-listen to sections as it crunched though ideas quickly, these are big ideas. I believe I shall return to hear this many times

I often lose my place as my mind goes off on many interesting tangents. It is a go to on my listening list when I just need something to listen to and focus on. Having a notebook and pen on hand to jot down questions or insights I find handy
