From AudioFile:

Parker prances through Thomas's complex thoughts and abstruse language, sharing a rich good humor with the author. They are ideally mated. Thomas possesses the true scientist's erudition and clarity. Parker maintains the author's confidence that the reader/listener follows his discussion, despite his use of scientific terminology. With a conversationally quizzical tone, he tosses off Thomas's wry commentary as if he thought it up himself. To read, comprehend and enjoy this book on one's own can be daunting. In the company of a guide like Parker, we experience the joy of sagacity vocalized by a nimble and discriminating performer. S.B.S. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
