Brilliant - It really makes your head spin!,
By A Customer
This review is from: About Time: Einstein's Unfinished Revolution (Penguin Science) (Paperback)
My only criticism with this book is that the first chapter is a bit too long and philosopihical, so it takes a while to get into, but if you enjoy philosophy then it is not a problem, and if you don't then you can just skip it without losing any of the understanding of the theories that come later. He presents loads of different and amazing theories from different areas of physics and brings them all together near the end, and has one of the best explanations of the Twins Paradox and relativity that I have seen so far in a popular science book. It's impossible to put down, and your perspective of the universe will be completely different after reading it - it is amazing.
