"Deeply satisfying... [An] engrossing blend of theory, history, and anecdote." "Among the best of [its] genre to appear in recent years." -- Malcolm W. Browne "Readers seeking to go beyond today's headlines will not find a higher authority (or a better storyteller) to discuss the cosmos's most bizarre features... Masterful and intriguing." -- Marcia Bartusiak "Superb. It is what many other books about their subject ought to have been and were not... I think the book itself will be a strong force." -- Carl Sagan "Black Holes & Time Warps reveals the scientific enterprise as very few books do; it richly overflows with history, modern physics, the excitement of discovery, and rare, firsthand scientific styles and temperaments." -- Alan Lightman
