Blew my mind,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Reality: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions) (Paperback)
If you've ever wanted a conveniently-sized book to have in your bag for those hyperreal moments like waiting for a doctor's appointment or waiting to be served in the post office, then this book will totally turn around those moments. Worried that you're actually just a head in a jar being fed virtual reality? Or that you're dreaming reading this right now? (Answers: If you are, you're almost certainly not, and yes, there's a one-in-ten chance that you are).
The Very Short Introductions are packed with very interesting revelations and awaken a "real" fascination with a subject that goes so much further - well-written and informative, I got far more from this (and the other one I bought, Nothing) than I thought I would, it was imaginatively presented and gave an awful lot of information for such a small book on such a complex subject.
