A stimulating, state-of-the-art guide to modern physics & cosmology.,
This review is from: Black Holes, Wormholes and Time Machines, Second Edition (Paperback)
This updated 2nd edition(2012) of Jim Al-Khalili's 'Black Holes, Wormholes and Time Machines' is an exciting, witty, mind-expanding and accessible guide to modern physics and cosmology.
After a brief but illuminating introduction there are 10 chapters divided into 3 parts: Space, Time & Time Machines. This edition covers the latest developments in high-energy astroparticle physics and Big Bang cosmology.
Anyone who considers that the ideas and theories of modern physics are beyond their understanding should be pleasantly surprised by Jim Al-Khalili's engrossing and stimulating book.
The steep price of this paperback may deter many potential readers but this can be solved by ordering a copy from the local library(providing it hasn't been closed down!).
