"Narrator Benjamin Soames presents listeners with snapshots of nine scientists and their impactful discoveries in this collective biography. The scientists are Copernicus, Pascal, Halley, Linnaeus, Davy, Volta, Babbage, Humboldt, and, finally, Oppenheimer. The scientists' work covers a variety of scientific fields including astronomy, geometry, physics, and chemistry. Each bio begins with a short clip of classical music that provides a delightful transition between each scientist's story. Soames keeps to a steady pace and energetic tone throughout his narration, which helps hold the listener's attention and bring these important scientists to life. Science enthusiasts and novices alike will be intrigued by the brief yet informative biographies. M.D. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine"
