5.0 out of 5 stars reader from barrowford, uk, 22 April 2004
By A Customer
Interested in the cosmos? Got some physics? (Thanks Mrs Perry, I'm sorry I was such a dunce, but I was a FASCINATED dunce). Have you tried to wrap your head around the concept of space being curved, and found your brains curdling and your knees turning green? If so, this is the book for you. Forget those rubbery sheet models, this writer knows how to make you SEE how space could be finite and saddle shaped (my favourite), or flat and infinite. Every model she describes is completely comprehensible, even if you don't have elucidating dreams about it like I did..... This is an excellent, human-sized read, written by a woman with a real life and a handle on both her everyday experience AND the mind-bending mysteries of life, the universe, etc.

No really, it could be saddle shaped... like a Pringle....... honest....

5.0 out of 5 stars Human!, 22 Oct 2002
By 
Rebekha Dewey (Reading, Berks United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
This review is from: How the Universe Got its Spots: Diary of a Finite Time in a Finite Space (Hardcover)
A wonderfully understandable and personalised diary. Touches on most, if not all relevent theories in the field, but in a way which us mere humans can understand. Excellently written.
