Worlds Within Worlds: The Story of Nuclear Energy, Volumes 1-3


Read by Blane Aden McKoy

(4.8 stars; 89 reviews)

This is a short booklet on science fact commissioned by the U. S. Energy Research and Development Administration (Office of Public Affairs). It tells the story of the origins of nuclear physics in terms understandable to an audience with minimal technical background. What were the steps through history - the discoveries that built upon one another - from alchemy to chemistry, physics, astronomy, mathematics, and quantum mechanics, that led to our understanding and harnessing nuclear energy? Asimov was a great writer of both science fact and fiction who wrote or edited more than 500 books, published in 9 of the 10 major categories of the Dewey Decimal Classification. (4 hr 16 min)

Reviews

interesting stuff


(5 stars)

Very well written and well read history of the atom and the atomic age. It leaves you a little hungry for the more current research and knowledge.

The dulcet tones of Aden McKoy


(5 stars)

Aden McKoy is a pleasure to listen to. He uses inflection with perfection. "Worlds Within Worlds" is a difficult book to understand, but if "Worlds Within Worlds" were complex carbohydrates, then Aden McKoy's narration would be the fiber that helps you digest it. I sincerely hope to hear more from Aden McKoy.

Beautiful

This is undoubtedly the best book on physics I've gone through. Content - 10/10, audio - 10/10. The author's expression is lucid and the reader perfectly reproduces it. This is a classic.

WOW! Interesting!
