"More years ago than I care to reckon up, I met Richard Feynman." So begins THE LANGUAGE GOD TALKS, Herman Wouk's gem on navigating the divide between science and religion. In one rich, compact volume, Wouk draws on stories from his life as well as on key events from the 20th century to address the eternal questions of why we are here, what purpose faith serves, and how scientific fact fits into the picture. He relates wonderful conversations he's had with scientists such as Feynman, Murray Gell-Mann, Freeman Dyson, and Steven Weinberg, and brings to life such pivotal moments as the 1969 moon landing and the Challenger disaster. Brilliantly written, THE LANGUAGE GOD TALKS is a scintillating and lively investigation and a worthy addition to the literature.

About the Author:

Herman Wouk's acclaimed books include The Will to Live On, This Is My God, Pulitzer Prize winner The Caine Mutiny, The Winds of War, and War and Remembrance.

From AudioFile:

Herman Wouk, best known for his fiction, in particular THE WINDS OF WAR, invokes a theme he summarizes with the question, "Is the stage too big for the drama?" Thus, he tantalizes listeners to continue with his thought-provoking journey from quantum theory to religion. During an interview with Richard Feynman, the self-professed agnostic and architect of the atomic bomb tells Wouk that "calculus is the language God talks." The brain food in this audiobook weighs so much that narrator Bob Walter must shift to low gear to allow listeners to absorb every morsel. Walter sounds comfortable with the vast vocabulary of science mixed with sprinklings of Yiddish. In the coda he credibly personifies a Jewish scholar from Wouk's WAR AND REMEMBRANCE, delivering a touching eulogy prior to his murder in the Holocaust. J.A.H. AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
