Ever wondered why NASA and its sycophants are always puzzled at every new discovery in space, and why its vaunted "experts" are consistently incapable of explaining any phenomenon without recourse to mathematical gymnastics and imaginary constructions pulled from the nearest hat? It's quite simple really: because standard theories are as wrong as it's possible to be, ignoring the presence of electromagnetic forces in favour of gravity, a force 10 to the power of 39 (that's 10 with 39 trailing zeroes) weaker than EM. Unfortunately, it is becoming increasingly clear that the universe and everything in it is motivated by electricity, and that gravity is simply the observed result of charge differential. Strangely we know (or THINK we know) that subatomic particles such as neutrons, protons and electrons are controlled by electrical forces, yet for some reason this is ignored when we think on bigger scales. Not for much longer, methinks.

A concise introduction to the Electric Universe, written by a non-specialist in terms anyone who actually reads the book should be able to understand.

Thoroughly recommended for anyone who sees the obvious disconnects in orthodox "theory" (guesswork would be a better word, and not even particularly good guesswork, as imaginary entities such as "Black Holes" and "Dark Matter" show all too clearly) and is disillusioned with the overbearing attitude and lack of sensible explanations from mainstream astronomy.

This book is an extremely worthwhile addition to the growing list of publications that are pointing out the embarrassing inherent faults in many modern `standard astrophysics texts'. It is written on a level that is accessible, readable and meaningful.

If astrophysicists can postulate the existence of unseeable, untestable entities such as dark matter, WIMPS and MACHOS, why can't anyone just hypothesize whatever comes to mind to support theories that do not pass the tests of reality? The answer is: because that's not science. That's not the way it works. That is simply unfounded speculation. It may be fun to do. But, it is not the way legitimate scientific hypotheses are formulated. But that is what modern astrophysics has become - a collection of mind bending tall tales told round a campfire. But spoken with the authority of the `great-experts' behind them.

Then along comes a book like this one that presents straight-forward scientifically based explanations for observations that the `experts' only justify by inventing and applying invisible, unmeasurable entities and forces that no sane, well educated person would ever accept as being real. Yet this author, as have others like him, is being subjected to pure invective from reviewers using such as words like "COMPLETELY FROOTLOOP" and "this book is a huge pile of mindless drivel". Yet these attacks make no attempt whatever to present factual counter-arguments. They just villify. They just name call. As do all con-artists who have been caught out.

Modern astrophysics will eventually become ashamed of what they have been foisting on the scientific community and the public at large. They have gotten away with their dreams and fictictious entities that are no better than the "dog ate my homework". `Missing matter' and `dark energy' are baseless fictions. Excuses like that only work for a very short time in intelligent scientific communities.

Plasma science and electromagnetism have much to offer modern astrophysics. Read this book. You owe it to yourself to do so.

This ' Beginners Giude ' succeeds in its objective of getting the realities of our amazing situation/Universe , to the average Joe (me). We live in times where we are told Black is now White, up is now down ! At total enmity with the Truths we so ernestly persue . For the layman , a great introduction to our amazing Electrical Universe !

This is a fantastic layman's guide to the Electric Universe. I too am a physics graduate and a teacher of physics but unlike one of the other reviewers I have read this book with an open mind. We owe it to the youth of today to teach them to think for themselves and consider the evidence available and draw their own conclusions. This is an easy read for the non-physics specialist and if you have ever thought that points of infinite density and invisible dark matter and dark energy were all a bit too convenient then this could be for you. The electric universe MIGHT be right it MIGHT be wrong it is probably somewhere in between. Highly recommended.

As others have said, this book is an easy read. It did not spoil my Autumn holiday ! The first half can hardly be argued with and will introduce a novice to the amazing properties of electricity. The latter part of the book is more debatable, as indeed it expects to be, but Tom puts his points over very well and explains the theories which may or may not be right. The illustrations are excellent. However, I did not like the several references to established astro-scientists having 'closed minds' and the implication that 'they' are sticking to the establishment story for the sake of their progress in academia, which I am afraid I do not believe for a moment.

Ever since I was a Teenager, I have had a problem with Einstein's General Theory and the thought experiments that he used to come up with the idea. I trained as an Electronics Engineer, this book is written by an Electrical Engineer and I found that it gelled. It is written simply, with not too much technical speak, so can be understood by any interested layman. It lays out the ideas of the Electric Universe succinctly and I, for one, am convinced the ideas expressed within it's pages are much closer to the reality of space, time and our universe than some of the gobbledygook spouted by the mainstream cosmologists and astrophysicists concerning Gravity Waves, Dark Matter and Black Holes. I urge everyone to read it and think about the ideas it introduces. Thank you Tom, for writing it.

This is a amazing book to introduce you to the 'Electric Universe ' points out alot of flaws with the gravity based model of the universe and gives a very plausible alternative. Does make you wonder why this is not discussed in the mainstream.

Speaking as a physics graduate I can assure you that this book is a huge pile of mindless drivel.

It starts from the physically accurate point that electromagnetism is stronger than gravity and then goes COMPLETELY FROOTLOOP with insane conclusions drawn from wildly inaccurate 'facts'.

You should only buy this book if you fancy a laugh or are certain that THEY are keeping THE TRUTH a secret so that their reptile overlords can take over the world.
