Arize anything in the book here read it to find out or look at other s summariesMy reviewIt is rare when I feel compelled to write a review for a book that I m reading WHILE I M STILL READING IT Yes this such a book I heard about this book on NPR just before Christmas 2017 as I was about to enter my local library I found the book on the New Non Fiction shelf and I found the book on the New Non Fiction shelf and began reading it Four weeks later last Friday I had to return the book because another library atron had reuested it So I bought the book #HERE ON AND IT ARRIVED TODAY #on and it arrived today three days later YAYLast night anticipating the arrival of the book I ordered a second copy for my friend who always talks about black holes which I learned is not a good term to describe it yes in this bookIt has been much slower to read this book than I thought it would because I find myself constantly Stud in the Stacks putting it down toonder what I just read And also to look up the footnotes in Wikipedia and Google Remember for you old timers when you used to refer to a dictionary for a definition or spelling of a word and you would get lost reading the dictionary That is happening to me again When I research something in this book I find myself getting curious by the minute and it takes me a long time to get back to the book This Choosing to Survive process is taking longer and longer the I read That is not a complaint but it is a factI m only 60% through the book and I ve already found that it helps to go back and read an early chapter to brush up on the terms and concepts because some of the ideas are unusual and can be challenging to accept That being said if one were to just read the words one could uickly finish it since it is only about 350ages long So don t worry if you think this book is anything like a regular text book That is very far from the truth The Robin Hood pair who wrote this book a comedian and a scientist do an excellent job of keeping one s interest There are freuent one liners and cute drawings on almost every otherageOk back to the book and to the Felipa profound discoveries that I did not know human kind had made AND BEYOND THAT to the concepts and information that humans have yet to figure out which as it. Fographics cartoons and unusually entertaining and lucid explanations of science they give us the best answers currently available for a lot of uestions that are stillerplexing scientists including Why does the universe have a speed limit Why arent we all made of antimatter What or who is attacking Earth with tiny superfast The Vavasour Macbeth particles What is dark matter and why does it keep ignoring us It turns out the universe is full of weird things that dont make any sense But Cham and Wh. Turns out spoiler alert is still about 95% of the universe Great It helps if you have a little bit of knowledge regarding uantumhysics otherwise just read it a bit slower It is an eye opener forcing you to read and then go back a few The Blueprint (English Edition) pages to refresh your memory The illustrations are not really suitable for the Kindle edition but that s a minoroint I ve read a lot #About Uantum Science But This Book Looks Outside The Box #uantum science but this book looks outside the box makes your brain hurt by opening new athways for you to think
