4.0 out of 5 stars No Equations!, 8 Feb 2014
This review is from: Behind the Scenes of the Universe: From the Higgs to Dark Matter (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
If you are like my husband and love lots of equations and Maths in your science, then this probably isn't the book for you.

However, if like me you can cope with a few equations but soon start to glaze over, or you'd rather not have any Maths to stress about, then this might just be the book about Dark matter for you!

The writer is a great communicator. He helps you understand complex ideas, although not necessarily in a scientifically "rigorous" way, but this book is written for us ordinary mortals who don't have PhDs in Astrophysics. Its for the intelligent and interested amature rather than the professional. Its a step up from the Brian Cox DVDs, and needs slow reading and thinking, but is a good read.
