There are are a several excellent reviews in Goodreads so I shan't try to duplicate them here.
In spite of the lack of maths, or maybe because of it, it is a very challenging book. Smolin argues that from the Newtonian point of view the fate and course of the Universe is fixed at the moment of the Big Bang, by spatializing the time dimension. No surprises, no innovations. However Smolin's thesis is that time is not an illusion but is real and evolves continuously he allows the laws of physics to evolve and thus the fate of the universe is not yet fixed. But read the book.
I am a tolerably well informed amateur and I thought I was close to uderstanding modern physics, but now I don't think I know anything.
