Summary

Author of the New York Times best seller The Beginning of Infinity, David Deutsch, explores the four most fundamental strands of human knowledge: quantum physics, and the theories of knowledge, computation, and evolution - and their unexpected connections. Taken together, these four strands reveal a deeply integrated, rational, and optimistic worldview. It describes a unified fabric of reality that is objective and comprehensible, in which human action and thought are central. 

With new preface exclusive to the audiobook, read by the author.

Disappointing

90% of the book are trivial things and banalities the author spends too much time on, chewing on the same things over and over, making the book boring. There are some interesting and nontrivial ideas but they don’t get enough explanations and justification, so the most interesting parts remain dubious and controversial.

Hard to listen to.

I found this really hard to concentrate on. It sounds like it is read by a text to speech machine. A lot of filler and waffling.

I would recommend Marcus Chown - Quantum Physics can’t hurt you instead.
