If I'd been trying to read this book myself, I could picture myself losing the thread and giving up before I was even half-way through. However, listening to Dr. Ellenburg read it was quite a different experience. While I can say for sure that I didn't understand everything he said, somehow it was all (except the loopy election bit) very interesting. One thing that didn't all go over my head was the humor. It was neat how he found ways to poke fun at academics and make ordinary mortals feel that we count for a great deal ourselves. I look forward to listening to it again and, I hope, understanding a little bit more. Thank you for a work that's clearly intended to bridge the gap between you & us.
Not a great audio book, unless you are already familiar with a lot of math concepts.... Maybe it would be good along side a physical book. For me, everything seemed to run together into math is over my head.
