Good overview of some alternative interpretations of QM - at moments the book is hard to follow at others involves unnecessary metaphors, but in other places it is spot on.

Given how hard it is to understand QM foundations I think the effort is of great value.

This is a really fascinating look at lots of physics-related things, many of which I was at least partially familiar with before listening to the audiobook. There was still plenty to learn, though, and I appreciated the new perspective on some of the topics. I think in order to get the full most out of this book, though, I will need to read it again in print form so that I can revisit paragraphs and look things up as I go.

Carroll is a fluent lecturer, very personable, and very knowledgeable (and a snappy dresser for a Great Courses professor), but this course is badly organized. After 24 lessons, I feel like I heard the same things repeated a dozen times, and at the end, the main point of the videos, why is there an arrow of time, doesn't seem much better explained than it was several videos earlier. There are all sorts of interesting digressions along the way, into things like neuroscience, and as I said, Carroll is so likable and such a good presenter that I kept watching, but this material could have been easily presented in half the time, and it would have become more understandable in the process.… (mais)
