Michael Faraday is regarded as one of the founding fathers of modern physics. His work in the field of electromagnetism revolutionized society, leading to new avenues of study and developments of technology that would leave the world changed forever. Without Faraday’s discoveries, there would be no electronics or electrical power. There would be no technology as we recognize it, or at the very least those technologies would have taken much longer to arise, causing our time to look very different.

An Excellent Basic Biography and Basis for Further Study

Like many others, I had heard of Michael Faraday but actually knew little about him. This excellent work completely filled in the basic knowledge that I lacked. It is basic and concise. It is very readable although the underlying scientific concepts remain very complicated. Therefore this product is excellent for the basic understanding of the man and provides a launching pad for further study should one wish to do so. Thank You....

Faraday is a super hero of Science.

The story of Faraday and his discoveries is fascinating.
I am unhappy with AUDIBLE and the chapter list. Audible doesn’t include the names of the chapters and the chapter numbers from Audible do NOT match the chapter numbers in the book. A second reading of a favorite chapter is really difficult to identify. I want to know the chapter names. I want the numbers to match. When I click on chapter 6, the book should be on chapter 6. It is not. This problem is rife within AUDIBLE! Please FIX!
