The best

Simply the best audiobook I heard on the subject. Very complete, concise and updated to the latest findings. May be hard to follow at the last chapters for a layman like me but with repeated listening I truly learnt a lot from this.

Some books really need paper

Very interesting, but I found it difficult to keep up with the numbers, symbols and equations audibly. The quality of the reading and the subject are excellent - this is just one of those books that should be read.
