Aczel presents not only the science, but also the scientists behind a rather daunting subject. He puts a face to go along with the names of the physicists giving an insight into the human side of quantum physics that (outside of Feynman's books) you rarely find.
Some of the equations and experimental setups don't come across perfectly without the figures to go with them, but even with the hard (as well as occasionally difficult) science, the overall flow and tone of the book is still both enjoyable and accessible.
If you like physics or science fiction, you should get this.

This is not a book that I was able to enjoy at all in audio-book format. I am not a scientist nor a mathematician, but I like to think that I am reasonably astute and have read quite a few books on science and math. But this is not the right format for this book. It is not easy to follow the numerous formulas, tables, and calculations read by the narrator and I was completely lost most of the time. I stayed with it to the end, but I wouldn't do it again for any reason. I have read a couple of other books by this author, and enjoyed them. But not this one
