The book stumbles a bit in the beginning, and you start to wonder if it’s going to be any good, as the book starts with a lengthy comedy bit which is a bit half-baked (hence only 4 stars. But once they get into the meat of the science it is a really great book to listen to. I particularly like the way they present the information so that a lay person can understand it without dumbing it down. I also like the discussions about the need to be skeptical of the pseudo sciences, and the deep analysis that Brian makes on the scientific methods and why they are important. From the Big Bang to the heat-death of the universe in the unimaginably distant future, it’s all covered. I’m a fan of the monkey cage podcasts, and I’m glad I’ve bought this book too. Gonna start at the beginning again and enjoy it once more

A good mix of humour and well thought out metaphors that helped gain greater understanding - at least temporarily - of a number of complex topics I’ve read about before, as well as many I hadn’t. That I actually followed some of the jokes informed me that I’m slowly starting to understand some of the concepts. An excellent audiobook well worth the time.
