Couldn't put it down!,
This review is from: The Big Questions: Physics (Hardcover)
This is a great little book.....which gives a good general overview of the most talked about topics in physics....including 'String Theory'.
It's A5 in size...so is good for those 'on the go' readers, like myself....and is nicely written with an easy to read layout, making the rather complex text seem easier to break down.
Although i thoroughly enjoyed this book, i felt that it couldn't possibly be appreciated fully, unless you have a good prior knowledge of physics, as it does not delve to deeply into scientific terminology. If you don't know anything about quantum physics or relativity...you may find it a little hard to follow.
It may be useful to read '50 Physics ideas' by Joanne Baker before attempting this one....as it will give you a sound understanding of the key concepts of physics first.
