I was concerned that this sort of book may not be suited to an audible book because of continued references to figures and images from the printed version.
To make this a little less jarring, and confusing a PDF file is supplied with the requisite images.
If you are going to listen while driving, please take a long hard look at the images so that you can bring them to mind when mentioned in the book.
I will need to listen through again, as there is a lot that I do not yet understand.

This is a fantastic book and not dumbed down for your average reader. It's extremely challenging and makes you want to research all the different aspects of current physics. Another fantastic book from Lawrence Krauss

ok and worth a read, but there isn't really anything new here if you already have a interest in science and read around. there are no big ideas or new perspectives that make you go wow. For me, there are too many science facts and not enough philosophical musings about what is really happening.
I preferred his excellent book 'Atom'

I enjoyed listen to this book. I got lost at some points when Lawrence was discussing the more in depth sections about particle physics but I think that's more my fault.
Good, clear narration.

Would you listen to The Greatest Story Ever Told - So Far again? Why?
Yes. Lawrence is so passionate at trying to teach or help people understand science, and his enthusiasm just doesn't seem to wane. Also his subtle and not so subtle digs at those who think they know about the universe but really do not. Such an expansive and up to date view of the nature of all things as humanity knows it to be. Its a must read for anyone interested in the natural world and the universe.
What about Lawrence Krauss’s performance did you like?
His love of the journey of science and discovery and of the true nature of the universe comes across. He removes the smoke and mirrors that clouds the understanding of those who care to see or want to know.
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
Any additional comments?
Can't wait for the follow up.

Pretty high level, which is good for non-physicists! Enjoyed this book, and it's a good length.
