Editorial Reviews

From AudioFile

After listening to David Angus's work, the listener cannot help but give consideration to the notion that science involves an interconnectedness among scientists themselves, in addition to observation and measurement. The work covers scientists from various periods in history--from Aristotle to Isaac Newton to Albert Einstein to Watson and Crick. Angus presents those whose generosity was immense, such as Faraday, who did not patent the dynamo so that others could build upon his work; and those whose observational skills were profound, such as Watson, who intuited the structure of DNA from trial models. Clare Corbett and Benjamin Soames narrate conversationally, making the information vibrant. The quick pace never drags but may necessitate additional listens.

Review

"Narrator Benjamin Soames presents listeners with snapshots of nine scientists and their impactful discoveries in this collective biography...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."
