The universe, from the begining(?) to tomorrow

Having listened to other books read by their authors, I was at first wary.
This author made me feel that he was talking personally to me; talking and explaining everything I could want to know about our whole world. Not once did I feel he was reading from a book or script.
He explains what is known about our Earth and the whole universe, from start to finish, dealing with history, philosophers, scientists, physicists, mathematics . . . starting with the ancients, and their perceptions of their world, up to the use of all the latest modern equipment and theories available to mankind in his efforts to understand where, what and why?
The threads are continuous, leading logically from one discovery/realization to another; from a flat Earth to telescopes to gravity and on through vast distances to the gradual realization that we are just a small item and a small solar system in one of a huge number of galaxies.
The book presents a truly good listen that can be appreciated by any inquiring mind, from 12 years old up to the oldest of us.

A very thought-provoking discussion

Pulp Physics starts off a little slow, with repetition of information presented in other publications from this site. But, as the author gets into the discussions about our solar system and the universe it becomes much more interesting. There are many good examples presented to help the listener understand and comprehend the vastness of everything. I will anxiously await his future discussions of the universe.
