Great Minds of Science

The book presented interesting and relevant topics.

The interview format and background audio proved to be somewhat annoying.

I would not recommend this as a must listen book

Great content, poor production

The content is top notch! The same basic questions are posed to each scientist, and their answers are thoughtful and inspiring, especially to see the commonalities...

The entire project though is marred by sub-standard production. The audio starts and stops abruptly. The editing of the back-and-forth of the interviews comes across as amateurish.

Worst of all is the occasional use of background music. This does nothing good for me. It makes the narration almost inaudible at some times, and is right out distracting at others.
