Recommendation of a few Audible Books and Great Courses

I choose these books as a starting point for a deep dive into a rabbit hole of immense pleasure of learning and enjoying.

Music

This is one of the greatest professors/musicians in my opinion. Prof. Robert Greenberg. I have listened to over two dozen of his courses and can’t get enough.

Philosophy

Origin and Evolution

Covers all the way from big bang to our tiny blue dot. Just mind-blowing.

The Origin and Evolution of Earth : From the Big Bang to the Future of Human Existence

By: Prof. Robert M. Hazen

I will also heartily recommend “Origins of Life” by Prof. Hazen.

Books(meta)

To get a little meta, this is a nice compilation of some of the greatest books. Again this turned out to be a good intro to many books and then lets one choose their own rabbit holes.
