    Inhaltsangabe

    Science is humanity's greatest achievement. It ranges from the study of the universe itself to the smallest particles of matter contained within it - and everything in between. It explores everything from the big bang to theories about the end of the universe.

    If you want to better understand our physical world, as most of us do, gaining a basic understanding of science itself is profoundly important - yet many are intimidated by the breathtaking scope of such an endeavor.

    Now an award-winning science teacher has taken out the intimidation, harnessing that breathtaking scope into a series of 60 exciting, comprehensive, and accessible lectures that let you explore and understand the wealth of ideas, discoveries, and principles in all of the physical and biological sciences. You learn that understanding science comes from understanding not only its component disciplines - each of which has its own theories, pioneers, problems, and fundamental questions - but of knowing how these disciplines work with one another to create an entire mosaic of human knowledge.

    The lectures have been crafted to make those relationships crystal-clear, with an integrated approach that takes you through all of the major disciplines that fall under the umbrella of "science," including physics, chemistry, Earth science, geophysics, and biology.

    Each lecture covers one of the 60 fundamental principles of the scientific world - offering you new knowledge and insight into topics such as the scientific method, gravitation, atoms, the big bang, plate tectonics, volcanoes, proteins, ecosystems, and electricity.

    PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

    Great content, in this medium it's a rip-off

    The lecturer is great, but GC simply took video-tape audio and sold it as audio-book.

    Bit more current would be nice

    Brilliant course, but really could use an updated edition.
    Of course the essence doesn't age too badly.

    Essential knowledge

    This audiobook is an easy listening introduction to the natural sciences . If you are a regular reader of popular scientific magazines you will probably find nothing new in this lectures. Otherwise I strongly recommend it. I only missed some lectures about medicine and in the methodology chapters a discussion about the importance of statistics. As the book was published in 2013 I hope we will soon see a second edition. The rapid progress especially in planetology and genetics already made some lessons feel outdated.
