I have attempted to read this book several times, and have been stymied by the most-readable book on physics/astronomy. I really can't get the theory of relativity. In fact, I frequently have "aha" moments when my son explains his projects for GT science. I guess I'm just a life sciences gal.

And so I am pleased to pass this on to Melydia so that she can cross out one book on her wish list. I send it with wishes for a wonderful Christmas and 2004. And thanks for turning me on to some of great websites listed on her homepage! (I particularly like Engrish, since I was an ESL teacher for many years and taught many Japanese students).

9 out of 10

I finally finished this book. It's engaging, witty, and of course fascinating, but all the same I had to read it in spurts. Most of it was not new information, but it helped solidify a lot of concepts in my head through analogies plucked from real life. I'm still a tad shaky on string theory, but I do have a better understanding of black holes than I did before. This is what a layman's science book should be like: no equations or jargon, lots of pictures, and a very friendly narrative tone.

I hope to release this tomorrow night at or near the Bookcrossing meetup in Arlington, VA.

I found the book while picking up a zip car with my boyfriend. It was left on a bench near some shops and the zip car in Arlington, VA.
