Having read the book straight through, understanding but perhaps not fully absorbing its contents, it was a delight to find a comprehensive index following the main text and an extensive glossary enabling the book to be used as a reference work.
The book can be thoroughly recommended to anyone with an interest in our present understanding of how the Universe works.
The need to Talk About Kelvin an E-book by Marcus Chown is again very interesting and easy to understand it idoes explain morre about the contents of the book and is up to date with the latest thinking.
If this subject interest you then I don't think you will find anything as good as these to. They are excellent..
Enormously stimulating book. Fantastic stuff. Absolutely loved it.
It starts off very deep and 'sciencey' with some great observations on the properties and baffling behaviour of photons etc which might put some people off but I absolutely recommend reading through.
