I approached this book with some trepidation since science topics tend to either be watered down, or texts in the guise of popular books. However I should not have worried. Bova made the topic light as engaging as his many science fiction novels (in fact, I felt this moved at a pace surpassing his fiction, and with more humor), and the coverage of the topics were comprehensive, but thoroughly enjoyable and accurate.

Any additional comments?
I was looking for a more scientific discussion of light regarding the physics of light and its relationship to theories like Relativity, however, I was pleased with the technical and scientific narrative and found it very rewarding. I recommend this book to those who like to learn about stuff...
Would you listen to The Story of Light again? Why?
It was very captivating and full of interesting facts. Yeah, I would listen to it again after few moths to refresh my memory and enjoy it again
What other book might you compare The Story of Light to, and why?
Different in context, but I'd compare this book to Death by Black Hole by Neil Tyson. These two books focused on a single subject and went to great lengths to explain it to the average Joe.
Have you listened to any of Stefan Rudnicki’s other performances? How does this one compare?
No, I haven't
