Einstein, Bohr, and the Great Debate about the Nature of Reality
"Perhaps not to the casual listener's taste, Kumar's history of the development of quantum theory and the weight of work that has been undertaken to explain these difficult phenomena is a wonderful experience for lovers of physics. In this audiobook, complicated scientific theorems and, at times, almost mind-bendingly complex discussions regarding elements, atomic weights, experiments, and chains of formulae are easily dealt with by Ray Porter, who demonstrates a relaxed familiarity with technical matter. Porter re-creates the lives and times of the great scientists Albert Einstein, Niels Bohr, Marie Curie, and Ernest Rutherford, among others, who played their parts in the advancement of this dynamic new physics. QUANTUM offers almost 15 hours of solid science for devotees of the subatomic world. B.D.J. (c) AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine"
