Interesting facts, but the narrator's lacking
His pronunciation of scientific words should have been researched! It's a little jarring to hear words pronounced as they are spelled as opposed to how they should be said! I have a bit more of a science background than average, and the mispronunciations spread misunderstanding and the belief that science is hard! (It's not)
It's a fun book.

ANOTHER book ruined by bad narration
