Journal Entry 1 by Melydia from Rockville, Maryland USA on Sunday, May 23, 2010
Picked this up at The Book Thing in Baltimore, Maryland. I read another copy of this a while back, and this is what I had to say then:

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.

Left on a bench next to the fountain. (Which was running, but looked more like a hot tub.)
