John Gribbin, "Almost Everyone’s Guide to Science (Audiobook)"
Orion | 2000 | ISBN: 0752839748 | Audio CD | mp3 | 39,3 MB
John Gribbin, one of the world’s great popularizers of science, is that rare creature, a scientist blessed with the ability to explain complex subject matter in a way which is comprehensible to non-scientists. Almost Everyone’s Guide to Science is an essential book for the reader who is interested in science but doesn’t know where to start. Gribbin gives a broad overview of physics and biology, starting with the atom before building up to larger objects: humans, the earth, the solar systemand the universe. He also explains how scientific concepts are linked together–what evolutionary theory has to say about the way we think, how chaotic uncertainty and quantum uncertainty affect each other, and how sub-atomic particles came into being in the big bang.
If you’ve been baffled by the debates between Stephen Jay Gould and Richard Dawkins, or Daniel Dennett and Roger Penrose, then this is the book to read. Gribbin, a Visiting Fellow in Astronomy at the University of Sussex, will show you where the world finds itself 400 years after Gallileo. As Einstein said in 1936: "The eternal mystery of the world is its comprehensibility."
