Not Impossible to Understand, 24 July 2006
I am a 16 year old who has just finished their GCSE's, and with 10 long weeks of nothing to do i decided i may as well buy some books to keep me entertained :D! i bought this book mainly because i am fascinated with theoretical physics, i find it really interesting to read about all of the possibilities of physics, and although this book is about impossibility, it is just as fascinating and thought provoking!
when i first started to read it i thought it was perhaps a bit too technical for me, but after i while i began to understand things, thanks to the detailed explanations that aid the main ideas. this book is an extremely interesting read for any people interested in the theoreticla side of physics etc. i admit it is taking me a long time to read because it makes you think so much. i often read a paragraph and then stop just to think and fully comprehend the fascinating ideas tht are brought forward in this book.
all in all this is an amazingly in depth yet not too difficult to understand book for anybody who has an interest in scientific theory. definitely looking forward to reading more books by this author.
