I have read books on quantum physics/mechanics by:
Bill Bryson
Michiu Kakio
James Kakelios
David Bodanis
Stephen Hawking

And they were all great but I want mooore! Preferably on audio-book since I don't have the time to read much. But I do have time to listen.

Any recommendations?

How I Killed Pluto and Why It Had It Coming
A Traveler's Guide to Mars
The Black Hole at the Center of Our Galaxy
An Anthropologist on Mars
The Flight of the Iguana

You're welcome. They're all great in different ways, but my fave of the bunch is "Traveler's Guide". The author actually worked on the Mars mission and publishes a lot of previously unseen pics of the planet, many breathtaking and truly unique, such a pic from orbit of three dust devils moving across the surface. Okay, it might not sound like much, but imagine staring down the funnel of a tornado from orbit -- then make it three of them, leaving loooooong mark in the surface of Mars, like wayward pencils...

I got it at a discount, which suggests it might be out of print -- or very cheap if it's still available. Good luck!

I would think two hours of a book being read aloud by Stephen Hawking might wear on my nerves.

Did you read any of Carl Sagan's books?

No do you know which episode? I can perhaps download it since there is no channels showing that here.
