It's mainly for those of us who haven't done extensive reading on the subject but want to learn the basics of Cosmology (not Cosmetology), the origin and evolution of our universe. 'My Favorite Universe' is a short, easy listen with which I was never bored for even a moment. Neil explains his subject material in a simple and easily understandable manner with plenty of humor dispersed into it. As a previous reviewer stated, he has an unusual voice cadence that takes a bit to get used to, but I like it, as his excitement and enthusiasm clearly shines through.
If you ever wondered what the Big Bang theory was (not the tv show), what exactly are black holes, are we going to be destroyed by a meteor or asteroid, is there likely to be other life in our universe, are there other universes, and just how do we know all this stuff--this is surely the book for you.
So, step away from that fiction for just a moment (only 6 hours), and get yerself educated! You can even use this information as a conversation starter. Neil makes learning fun.
(Is it un-PC to call an Astrophysicist by his first name?)

Neil is a great story teller, and really paints an intriguing picture of the subjects covered. The depth of topics covered is probably more at the high school level not at the University level. However, the range is great enough that unless you're really in to astrophysics you'll probably find a lot that you didn't know.
I really appreciate how Neil discussed the topics, and so I really wish that the lectures went more in depth on each subject. As they are, it's more a sampling of a lot of topics related to astrophysics and space in general.
