Given the title, I expected this books to discuss matter in terms of particle physics, but this is basically a chemistry book. Granted, a discussion of chemistry is warranted when discussing the nature of matter, but I had expected much much less. The book wasn'd bad per se, just not what I expected given the title.

What made the experience of listening to The Nature of Matter: Understanding the Physical World the most enjoyable?
The book covered a very wide variety of chemistry subjects, from sub-atomic, atomic, and molecular interactions to the science of building materials, foods, dyes, aerospace materials, and more. Very educational and well organized. Parts of it were somewhat technical: at least an introductory college level. If you think a chapter is slightly dry, just wait for the later chapters.

A great introduction that left me wanting more. Fortunately, there are dozens of additional courses. Recommended.
If you are science student or just a person with an interest in "techy" things then you will like this. Its very informative, sometimes in a "broad brush" and sometimes with little details you'd need in an exam. And I really enjoyed the book!
