“James Burke is Oscar Wilde on Adderall.” — Stephen Hawking

“Enthralling, manic, trippy, encouraging. It gives me the same joy and courage as the training sequence in Rocky.” — Douglas Adams

“James Burke could have the answer. Maddeningly, he has the answer to most things and has had for years. … Like an intravenous slug of ice-cold Akvavit, he provokes shivers of shock and pleasure. His mix of cleverness, egotism, fun, imagination and accessibility is similar to the television styles of Robert Hughes or J. K. Galbraith, except that Burke is also naughty—like a mischievous elf.” — Alfred Unger

After his manic and trippy Connections of 1978, Burke went on to outdo himself with THIS in 1985 … The Day the Universe Changed!
