    1. Clif Hostetler on said:

      This work is available only in audio format, so it s of a performance than a book It provides a quick and easy description of the thought process followed by Einstein in development of the theory of special relativity and then later the theory of general relativity It s only two and a half hours long, so it only requires a modest investment of time to listen to it The information is presented in as easy to understand way as possible, so I recommend it to anyone who has difficulty accepting the [...]

    2. Shawn on said:

      Very entertaining and a good program to listen to A nice bit of history into Einstein and his impact into science This is a nice introduction And is very good for what it is.

    3. Nathaniel on said:

      This is a very short narrative chock full of interesting quotes from Albert Einstein and his contemporaries about his rise and fall, as it were It doesn t go into too much detail about the physics but there are enough explanations to help anyone follow along and instead traces a tragic narrative arc of a brilliant young man who split open the universe in an unparalleled at least since Newton act of scientific genius, but who never after that recovered the heights he had once trod Instead, he stu [...]

    4. Nik on said:

      What an excellent little book Perfect for audio listening It s the story of Einstein s great insight which led to the discovery of special and general relativity What an amazing thought process and discovery Life is a reality to be experienced and discovered Einstein gave us some beautiful truths to wrestle with.

    5. AndrewP on said:

      Basically a synopsis of Einstein s major theories There wasn t much here that I have not read before, but never have I heard it put forth in such an entertaining way Highly recommended and it s also very short so easy for anyone to digest.

    6. Lis Carey on said:

      Brian Greene, plus a cast of excellent voices reading the words of Einstein and his family, friends, admirers, and challengers, gives us a wonderful look at Einstein s work as well as his worldview and professional world His competitors and the ways in which his work overturned the way we viewed the universe are beautifully presented here Greene is always a joy to listen to when talking about the physics and cosmology he loves This one won t take much of your time just a couple of hours Don t mi [...]

      32 Light Falls Space, Time and an Obsession of Einstein by Brian Greene Science Audible 5 Anything relating to Einstein fascinates me as does this short read In this work, we follow Einstein on his quest to formulate the Theory of Relativity There is a conversation at the end of the reading between the narrator and the author and they ask the question With all the technology we have at our fingertips today, imagine what Einstein could have done with it Educational and an excellent full cast reco [...]

    8. Ben Vogel on said:

      An excellent short book, and really well done by Audible I learned a bunch of new stuff from this, and the physicist Brian Greene explained aspects of relativity in a way that helped me to finally begin to understand some of it I also gained several new understandings of Albert Einstein An example is while I knew that Einstein was a patent office employee, I had never contemplated how being exposed to all of the new ideas and emerging technologies of the late 19th and early 20th century could ha [...]

    9. Lara on said:

      This was kind of awesome A brief look at Einstein s life and his discovery of the theory of relativity, as told by Brian Greene, which he does with a casual flair and a great sense of humor and wonder Plus, omg, you guys, Paul Rudd as Einstein You know how I feel about Paul Rudd I m just going to leave this here

    10. Linda on said:

      This is a very short audio book that attempts to make Einstein s theories accessible to a layman In truth, I didn t understand any about Einstein s theories than before I read the book, but I did enjoy listening The narration was good, and the historical anecdotes were very interesting It s a good book, but hardly amazing It only scratches the surface of Einstein on any level academic, professional or personal I do think that anyone who reads this will have an idea if they want to seek out anoth [...]

    11. Patrick on said:

      I m sorry, I can only give this 2 stars As much as I wanted to like it, and loving the subjects of physics and string theory, cosmology, astronomy, and the works of Einstein, Hawking, Sagan, deGrasse Tyson, etc, I just suffered through the performance piece of this audiobook It had excellent reviews and I let that make my decision when buying the book, but it felt like a Broadway play to me, and I don t like Broadway plays I m a fan of Paul Rudd, and I still am of course , but this was just an o [...]

    12. Craig Turnbull on said:

      Two things I learned 1 Albert Einstein was very smart He was way than E MC He thought a lot about origins, light, gravity and how all that stuff fits together in complex equations.2 I am not so smart Brain Greene s excellent book was helpful in telling me that I can t even understand a dumbed down version of Einstein.Humility is a good thing, so I gave the book 4 stars.

    13. Rob on said:

      overall a very well performed audiobook, and a very nice basic introduction to Einstein and his early work it is a very short book, only 2 hours in length, plus a 30 minute interview dialog that Brian green does with others Brian Greene has always been one of the better communicators of science, and has great uses of analogy that make it very accessible pretty much anyone with an interest.

    14. Michele on said:

      1 Paul Rudd plays Einstein2 it was on sale3 it was very short less than 3 hours interesting sort of biography essay play about Einstein and the development of his most famous theories RELATIVELY haha, puns easy to understand even for a non science math person plus, Paul Rudd I very much enjoyed the little recorded QA between author and Rudd at the end too.

    15. Mikayla Almquist on said:

      Holy frijoles I m I m gonna need a minute gravity and time and light and I think it ll be a few before I can properly put my brain and heart back together

    16. Claudia Aroni on said:

      If you love physics, you are going to love this audiobook If you don t, you would at least find this book beautifully narrated and full of fascinating tidbits of information.

    17. Antonia on said:

      The audiobook was just wonderful Music, drama, and a great story You don t need a background in physics or relativity to enjoy this I was swept away.

    18. Wellington on said:

      What an enjoyable introduction to Einstein s life and work Next step read a biography of the genius.

    19. Ryan Alsaihaty on said:

      Two hour story about Einstein s journey to discovering special theory of relativity, general theory of relativity, and the years that followed The writing is brilliant and sometimes funny, but don t expect to have full biography of Einstein after finishing this The title in Audible ends with a half hour discussion between Brian Greene narrator and Paul Rudd playing Einstein , in which they discuss physics and Einstein s life Overall a good listen, especially while commuting to from work.

    20. Jayme on said:

      Greene did a good job bringing big topics down to an understandable level His enthusiasm and Rudd s interpretation of Einstein s words made this a fun book to listen to, while learning something at the same time

    21. 1️⃣0️⃣yrs 1️⃣0️⃣0️⃣0️⃣books Marcus on said:

      A technically well done drama An Einstein crash course a mere two hours in length presented in a novel way that is immensely entertaining for newbies and perhaps even the well versed on the matter of Einstein s life and work Just don t expect anything new if you count yourself well read on matters of special and general relativity Why five stars Through its dramatic, graphic audio presentation it manages to stimulate that hidden hunger in me that wants to know the machinations of this great uni [...]

    22. Rob Hermanowski on said:

      This is a short, audio only production by physicist author Brian Greene and actor Paul Rudd along with multiple other voice actors in smaller roles It traces the evolution of Einstein s mind boggling discoveries about the universe No new ground is covered, but, as always, Greene has an extraordinary capacity to make the complicated world of space time physics relevant and understandable.

    23. Adam Cagle on said:

      It was decent fun hearing Einstein s words from some good actors nothing overly new or interesting, no revelations, just a fun couple of hours much of which is self serving interviews with the cast If you get this for free and have nothing else at all to do then I think it s worth your time.

    24. Trenton on said:

      This was like a documentary, a highly produced and brief but extremely interesting and easy to understand account of Einstein s scientific journey.

    25. C.A. Gray on said:

      I generally don t listen to non fiction audiobooks, because I have a hard time absorbing the information This book was an exception, mostly because it was on sale in Audible but also because it was a dramatization of history than anything else Narrated by physicist Brian Greene I ve read other books he s written, and they re usually a lot heavier than this , it s also performed by a full cast, with Paul Rudd playing Einstein and several other actors playing scientists with whom he worked and st [...]

    26. Erik Molnar on said:

      Short book on Einstein s equation, but packed with great insight I have read a lot about Einstein by proxy He is mentioned in practically every single science physics book that I ve read This book was full of new information about him written in an interesting light See what I did there Brian Green is one of my favorite scientist authors His book, The Elegant Universe, is one of my all time favorites even if I do not understand everything in it It is about superstrings and the grand unified theo [...]

    27. Arvind on said:

      In the last year I ve listened to Brian Greene s The Elegant Universe Superstrings, Hidden Dimensions, and the Quest for the Ultimate Theory, seen the DVD special on the book and also listened to a couple of his TED talks In addition to be a physicists he is an excellent storyteller and presenter So I had high expectations going in to listen to this short audible exclusive And it lived up to my expectations The added bonus was Paul Rudd doing the voiceovers The discussion between Greene and Paul [...]
