This book answers so many questions asked implicitly and explicitly by so many people. It is amazing that it is only now that we have these insights made available in accessible form. All congratulations to the author

I would recommend the book to all young people who have absorbed conventional wisdoms about Christianity, and of course everybody else.

5.0 out of 5 stars light from black holes, 26 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I saw Leonard Susskind on a BBC tv programme and was amazed by some of the claims made, which led me to buy his book. Having studied physics in school, without great understanding I have to say, I was delighted to reacquaint myself with familiar but forgotten entities such as Planck's constant and E+MC2, to be introduced to relativity, the mysteries of quantum physics and of course the extraordinary phenomena known as black holes, and because of Prof Susskind's elucidation, begin to grasp their remarkable significance. He described 'complementarity', how a phenomenon, such as light, can appear to be one thing (a photon) and quite a different thing (a form of radiation) at the same time! This seems almost metaphysical and seems reminiscent of some of the philosophical struggles of the Greeks, 'essences' come to mind. It is tough going at times, though, not a light read, I had often to refer back to previous chapters to be sure I understood a new insight, but his writing style keeps the reader engaged. As a psychiatrist, it saddens me that the science we rely on seems so soft by comparison, that we can not call on mathematics and formulae, so far, but maybe physics is showing us the way?
