Elf getting curious by the minute and it takes me a long time to get back to the book This process is taking longer and longer the I read That is not a complaint but it is a factI m only 60% through
The Book And I Ve Already Found book and I ve already found it elps to go back and read an early chapter to brush up on the terms and concepts because some of the ideas are unusual and can be challenging to accept That being said if one were to just read the words one could uickly finish it since it is only about 350 pages long So don t worry if you think this book is anything like a regular text book That is very far from the truth The pair who wrote this book a comedian and a scientist do an excellent job of keeping one s interest There are freuent one liners and cute drawings on almost every other pageOk back to the book and to the profound "Discoveries That I Did Not Know Human Kind Had Made "that I did not know مهارت در بازی زندگی human kindad made BEYOND THAT to the concepts and information that The Dragon in the Clock Box humansave yet to figure out which as it turns out spoiler alert is still about 95% of the universe I will not say a lot apart from to My Amazing Dinosaur (Tib Tumtum, have any impact popular physics books need to be accessible In that respect this is as good as it gets A bit silly in places the author isumble and The Nazi Revolution human Iave read a lot of similar books and to be Bloods a Rover (American Underworld Trilogy honest not a lot was new However a great way of refreshing your knowledge or learning for the first time that we know less than we think Great Itelps if you ave a little bit of knowledge regarding uantum physics otherwise just read it a bit slower It is an eye opener forcing you to read and then go back a few pages to refresh your memory The illustrations are not really suitable for the Kindle edition but that s a minor point I ve read a lot about uantum science but this book looks outside the box and makes your brain urt by opening new pathways for you to think about Am full of praise for this author I give it 4 stars deserves a 5 but nothing is perfect If you ask scientists who study such things Wylde Bears (Wylde Bears, how well we understand the Universe the answer you will get is not very well at all This book takes a lightearted look at the vastness of our ignoranceYou will not learn much by reading this book it is afterall about what we do not know You will ave fun exploring the subjects where our lack of knowledge is most certainly lackingReadig on my Kindle paperwhite some of the illustrations are very small and difficult to read but they are secondary on my Kindle paperwhite some of the illustrations are very small and difficult to read but they are secondary the main text Some of the jokes are so bad that in some cases it might considered a blessin. Iteson make a compelling case that the uestions we cant answer are as interesting as the ones we canThis fully illustrated introduction to the biggest mysteries in physics also elpfully demystifies many complicated things we do know about from uarks and neutrinos to gravitational waves and exploding black Arise holes With eual doses ofumor and delight Cham and Whiteson invite us to see the universe as a possibly boundless expanse of uncharted territory thats still ours to explore. Willy Wonka said a little nonsense now and then is relished by the wisest men This book is laced with nonsense But it s profound nonsense There s little in this book I didn t already know but now I know it better What makes this book so endearing is not just the physics and cosmology superbly explained it contains a uality rarely found in books written by scientists Archies Americana, Vol. 1 humility Ever try to read a book written by Roger Penrose They re not trying to impress with their brilliance and they explain complex subjects with clarity Instead of we know than you and if you can t understand us too bad for you No the message of this book is there is so much we don t understand Can youelp us This book reminds me of grandma s chocolate cupcakes Fun to consume made with love and secretly filled with vegetablesAnyone can write obtuse technical papers on their chosen field A few truly accomplished people can explain their subject in small words But it takes deep understanding a talent for writing and a The Book Thief heaping portion of wisdom to be able to simultaneously explain your topic in small words maintain a witty pace and wink at the wonderfulubris of the Talk to Me human race at the same timeMy favorite things Iesitate to mention because nobody ever wants to eat the cupcakes if they are told about the vegetables first But I do love the way they introduce the vocabulary and basic concepts of physics in an extraordinarily effective way One barely even notices the learning yet somehow each time they build on a previous concept the recall feels effortless Not once in this remarkable book did I say Wait what and Silver Mortal (The Gracen Chronicles, have to go backwards to re read something Like magic they would say Remember x and I wouldBut most of all this book was fun I own a sum total of three physical printed books excluding textbooks may Pearson Inc rot in eternal damnation for their unholy war on trees and pocketbooks and this one earned it s place in my tiny bookshelf with it sumor The information covered is interesting and presented simply enough for me to understand with my total lack of physics knowledge I would ave enjoyed it without the constant attempts to be zany and funny which I found grating I would probably recommend this book to a teenager but not to an adult This book provides a fantastic and well written introduction into some key physics concepts from uantum To The Structure "to structure our universe And of course all the many MANY things we do not know about these thingsAs someone else ere Living in Little Rock with Miss Little Rock has written sometimes the book does tr.
