I'll try to pick this one up again, but I've found myself dreading it.

The content seems good, however the writing style of the author bothers me quite a bit. It's something I come across often in books science presenting controversial theories. For each bit of content, there is a lot of quibbling with contemporaries that comes across as defensive, petty, and overly personal. I feel like I've walked into the middle of a science slap-fight.

Add to that the tone of condescension and arrogance--I swear, you can hear eye-rolling in the audio--and I just never want to turn it on.
