    I like to talk shit about science sometimes Sometimes it s just to push people s buttons and other times it s because of the pop side of science is ridiculous you know like the studies that get quoted on your web browsers start up page, which may even be contradicted a few days from now by some other article, or all those fucking pharmaceutical ad s on TV Hey, thanks Pfizer for helping make me a drug addict I just made a slight at pop s...

    Did you know that Schr dinger s equation is a perfect anagram of A Second Herring Quits And is a near perfect anagram of Surely someone s taking the piss The second anagram relies, of course and almost entirely , on a rather judicious application of Heisenberg s uncertainty principle but I do think that one may beilluminating of how I m finding some of the quantum mechanical experiments described in this book There is part of me that would like to believe that in the early part o Did you know that Schr dinger s equation is a perfect anagram of A Second Herring Quits And is a near perfect anagram of Surely someone s taking the piss The second anagram relies, of course and almost entirely , on a rather judicious application of Heisenberg s uncertainty principle but I do think that one may beilluminating of how I m finding some of the quantum mechanical experiments described in this book There is part of me that would like to believe that in the early part of the last century I don t remember the year, but surely on an April First a group of European physicists got together and decided to come up with an idea so monumentally ridiculous that it would have them chuckling at the gullibility of wemathematically challenged for years to come Einstein was i...

    Wow, what a wonderful book What a ride it was Brian is definitely one of the best science popularisers about, hands down It is amazing how he manages to convey potentially complex subjects, such as quantum mechanics and relativity, in a simple but at the same time rigorous manner And he does that with a contagious enthusiasm which reminded to me why I love physics I also greatly appreciated the fact that he never gets into the game like so frequently happens in popular science books, unfor Wow, what a wonderful book What a ride it was Brian is definitely one of the best science popularisers about, hands down It is amazing how he manages to convey potentially...

    Let s start with the positives Greene does an excellent job of explaining very hard to understand concepts in non mathematical ways That said, I think it was unecessary to use popular culture the way he did It feels silly, reading about Einstein and general relativity and getting an example which uses the Kwik E Mart, Bart, and Lisa and so forth But okay, I admit that this is a fairly small detail that shouldn t take too much away from the overall experience The important thing is that the Let s start with the positives Greene does an excellent job of explaining very hard to understand concepts in non mathematical ways That said, I think it was unecessary to use popular culture the way he did It feels silly, reading about Einstein and general relativity and getting an example which uses the Kwik E Mart, Bart, and Lisa and so forth But okay, I admit that this is a fairly small detail that shouldn t take too much away from the overall experience The important thing is that the concepts are explained in a manner which is understandable Does Greene do that He does, for the most part.Further, Greene is obviously passionate about the subject matter, and that is something that is contagious Reading about the bucket argument and the various attempts at answering it the exciting exp...

    HmmmI can now talk basics about String Theory and physics at a cocktail party Get me into anythingthan general commentary, discoveries, famous names and famous theories, and I m completely at a loss Green is a likable and passionate author, but for readers without a physics knowledge base, his little treatise is tough going, even with all the Simpsons references I remember the most important concepts, but the intricacies didn t stick with me This book is best read in segments, prefe HmmmI can now talk basics about String Theory and physics at a cocktail party Get me into anythingthan general commentary, discoveries, famous names and famous theories, and I m completely at a loss Green is a likable and passionate author, but for readers without a physics knowledge ...

    You probably knowabout physics than you think See, right there, when your brain registered the p word, a black hole of anxiety opened up in the pit of your stomach from which nothing can escape Your underarms began to radiate heat as your mind conjured memories of stuffy high school laboratories And as your eyes scanned ahead for those dreaded half English, half Greek words followed by an equal sign, the probability of you reading on fast approached zero.But there s hope Whether you re You probably knowabout physics than you think See, right there, when your brain registered the p word, a black hole of anxiety opened up in the p...

    I GIVE UPYou win this round science book shakes fist in anger In fact, after reading this book I ve given up on science completely in favor the Nabokovian theory of very young earth creationism The World Was Created This Morning. Theoretically there is no absolute proof that one s awakening in the morning th...

    What an incredible journey this was I think Brian is fantastically gifted to explain esoteric and cutting edge cosmological concepts without the use of formulae and maths He says himself that he will only use metaphors to explain the ideas, but even so he remains respectful of his subject, he does not dumb things down, and I found the metaphors for the most part evocative and helpful Towards the end of the book, however, the ideas get so far removed from human intuition that I would have want What an incredible journey this was I think Brian is fantastically gifted to explain esoteric and cutting edge cosmological concepts without the use of formulae and maths He says himself that he will only use metaphors to explain the ideas, but even so he remains respectful of his subject, he does not dumb things down, and I found the metaphors for the most part evocative and helpful Towards the end of the book, however, the ideas get so far removed from human intuition that I would have wanted a littleformalism, perhaps But this was on offer as well Brian adds a copious body of footnotes and in this way relegates arigorous discussion to the back of the book This discussion will of course still not satisfy those who have an in depth understanding...

    Glancing at the reviews for Brian Greene s overview of how we view the stuff of which our universe is made, it seems that some people base their rating and opinion on how much they agree with the science, or how credible they find it While I have read a fair few popular science books especially in the areas of physics and cosmology, areas I find utterly fascinating and about which I am perplexed that anyone can not be astounded and beguiled I have to assume that I am reading a fair explanat Glancing at the reviews for Brian Greene s overview of how we view the stuff of which our universe is made, it seems that some people base their rating and opinion on how much they agree with the science, or how credible they find it While I have read a fair few popular science books especially in the areas of physics and cosmology, areas I find utterly fascinating and about which I am perplexed that anyone can not be astounded and beguiled I have to assume that I am reading a fair explanation of facts and...
