The Canon, excellent piece of work. It is both a torch and booster shot for sophomore and juniors mired in the science memorization/regurgitation quagmire of high school. Filling the reader with both science fact and enthusiasm. The book and it’s author seem like a stimulus for encouraging school boards to vest more funds in high school science. A must read for science teachers rich with ideas geared towards making science interesting and meaningful.

I generally listen to non-fiction and I like to refresh and update my understanding of science. I have read this author's science reporting in the NY Times enjoyed it.
Based on that experience I purchased this book. I could not listen to more than 2 hours of it! Far too basic. The writing style is little more than a sting of quotes from scientists and comes off as a hard to follow "he said this and she said that." The result is tedious and hard to follow. Worst of all the book is littered with remarks that attempt to amuse, but really serve only to annoy.
Oh, the narrator makes all that is bad in this book that much worse because of her over to top perkiness.
