3.0 out of 5 stars Nothing much to add!, 8 Dec 2011
This review is from: The Grand Design: New Answers to the Ultimate Questions of Life (Hardcover)
I came to sit down and review this book, but as 113 others have had the same idea, I don't suppose I will have much fresh to say. Here goes!
This is not my academic stumping ground, but having caught a few minutes of a recent TV documentary on the theme of all embracing theories, thought this might take my awakening interest further.It began well, and I enjoyed the 41 or so pages about the history of ideas in the ancient world. The next major section was the 'meat' of the book, explaining a lot of Physics, useful to a general Science teacher wanting a clear crib for a last lesson on Whither Physics? I was looking forward to getting to grips with the final sections on M Theory, and to seeing why the authors are putting it forward as an ultimate(ish) underlying explanation as to why there is something rather than nothing. I felt this last part was less coherently written, and wonder if it had been heavily cut back to fit an agreed word limit. I still await acquaintanceship with answers to the questions posed by this book, but at least I now have a reference text should I want to revise their ideas at some future date.
