Very well written book. Where others merely skim the surface, this one provides the details, necessary equations and delves into the discussions. That said, listening is ruined by the narrator's random guesswork (redundant, eh?) at pronouncing certain names, terms, and even common everyday language. Very annoying, distracting and, at times, misleading. Otherwise, his voice and pacing would have made him an effective choice.

As mentioned in previous comments, the narrator's mispronunciations were pervasive and irritating. Although that regularly aggravated my OCD, I found the content of the book was entirely worth it, and often helped me ignore it.
As to the content itself, I was utterly astonished at the amount of astronomical evidence the author gave against currently accepted theories ranging from dark energy and dark matter to the expansion of the universe! I must note, however, that although I am personally still on the fence regarding multiverse theories, I found his refutations of these ideas lacking. For the interested listener, I highly suggest "The Mathematical Universe" by Max Tegmark which gives a clearer explanation of quantum decoherence and how it actually supports the Everretian multiverse as opposed to Mr. Stewart's misinterpretation. Overall, though, I do highly recommend this book, as I haven't seen most of his assertions in anything else I've read.
