I mistakenly bought the abridged version and it is impossible to follow unless you already have a good background in the subject. This book covers the most mind boggling discoveries of science but with so little depth that all you are left with are ludicrous metaphors. I was hopelessly lost and gave up after an hour. I skimmed the book in the bookstore to see if the unabridged text is better. It makes a lot more sense and is also more interesting then this badly edited version. It's just not possible with material of this nature to cut out 2/3 of it and be left with something coherent.

Fascinating summary of the topic. I would like to have bought the unabridged version, but (sorry, Mr. Pritchard) I agree that the narrator's voice is more than reminiscent of a 1950s educational documentary or newsreel. This is a worthwhile alternative.
