Would you listen to The Telomere Effect again? Why?

No. Its read by a know-it-all smug granny.

What did you like best about this story?

Info was good and up to date. Like the references to studies.

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Suzanne Toren?

The authors perhaps. Just not one who is talking to you like she's trying to get you to join her bible studies group. Stop smiling while reading as its unnatural in delivery.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No

Any additional comments?

Its good info, however its a bit jumbled and long winded in repeating the same bits over again. It could be about 1/2 the length if they just go to the point. Would be better with summaries at the end of the chapters. Quizzes in the audio were just horrible. Put them in the PDF.

Would you listen to The Greatest Story Ever Told - So Far again? Why?

Yes. Lawrence is so passionate at trying to teach or help people understand science, and his enthusiasm just doesn't seem to wane. Also his subtle and not so subtle digs at those who think they know about the universe but really do not. Such an expansive and up to date view of the nature of all things as humanity knows it to be. Its a must read for anyone interested in the natural world and the universe.

What about Lawrence Krauss’s performance did you like?

His love of the journey of science and discovery and of the true nature of the universe comes across. He removes the smoke and mirrors that clouds the understanding of those who care to see or want to know.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

the title.

Any additional comments?

Can't wait for the follow up.
