The gifted young cosmologist Janna Levin sets out to determine the size of the universe, along the way providing an intimate look at the day-to-day life of a globe-trotting physicist. Nimbly synthesizing geometry, topology, and chaos and string theories, Levin shows how the pattern of hot and cold spots left over from the Big Bang may one day reveal the size and shape of the cosmos. She does so with such originality, lucidity, and even poetry, that How the Universe Got Its Spots becomes a thrilling and deeply personal communication between a scientist and the lay listener.



"Lovely and utterly original....makes a reader long to meet the author." ( American Scientist)
"[A] gift to those people who want to think big but came to a screeching halt about two dozen pages into... A Brief History of Time." ( Discover)

Good content, bored narrator.

The topic was absolutely interesting and exactly what I was looking for. The diary/journal form was a bit odd for a non-fiction book, though.
I was unable to listen to larger chunks of the audio book, because the narrator sounded incredibly bored. While it did somewhat suit the narrative within this diary form, it was a bit of a downer.
But overall I recommend it.
