Can’t get used to the accent.

I really enjoyed the paperback, but the narrator has the most unusual and dare I say irritating voice I’ve heard on an audiobook.

The content isn’t bad and in some parts of the book, are extremely detailed yet well explained.

The author has put a lot of effort into this book which is why the paperback was so enjoyable.

For the less scientific minded, this book will gently get you up to scratch regarding each topic and talking point, before getting in to the nitty gritty.

I feel as though the author could be a little subjective and I even detected a little “woo woo” here and there, but I suppose he has to keep the Lehman interested.

Churge=charge
Oot=out
Oover=over

There are a lot of decent analogies in the book which make the quantum realm seem a lot more “knowable” if that makes sense.

Worth a read, but if you listen I guarantee you when he says. “churge” for the 5th time, you will start to get a little distracted by it.
