Product description

Review

One has to marvel at the innovative way in which writers Chown and Schilling have compressed big subjects ... Tweeting the Universe is not without humour and will make a useful and fun stocking filler. (Financial Times)

It's ridiculous but ingenious, and wholly successful. The extreme compression forced upon the writers makes clarity imperative: the discipline seems to have liberated them. Everything you failed to understand in Stephen Hawking's ridiculous books suddenly makes sense. You may learn more in an afternoon reading this book than you did in a whole childhood of science lessons. (The Spectator)

Great for quickly getting up to speed on topics like dark matter. (BBC Focus Magazine)

Chown and Schilling have done a fine job condensing the universe into bite-sized morsels of text. (thespacereview.com)

Book Description

In Tweeting the Universe: Tiny Explanations of Very Big Ideas, by Marcus Chown and Govert Schilling, two great science writers set themselves the challenge to describe the biggest theories in science - each in just 140 characters.
