    I have loved the movie for years. I was hesitant to listen to the book. Overall I was impressed. There were quite a few fundamental issues in the book that were different than the movie. Enough to feel it was a worth while listen. Some of the chapters on religion vs science were dull, but that may be because I've heard all the arguments before.
