This slim volume is wonderful. I give it five stars. It is concise and understandable, relevant and expansive. I bought it for our Physics major daughter, to send her while at camp (she is a horseback riding counselor in Colorado this summer) and I first was compelled to read it myself.
The seven lessons are as follows:
- general theory of relativity
- quantum mechanics
- the cosmos
- elementary particles
- quantum gravity
- black holes
- our existence in light of this
Imagine getting all that in 79 pages so it is clear for the uninitiated. It is brilliantly done. I recommend it for those who do not know anything about these topics, as well as those seasoned in them. A reader at any level can benefit from reading and pondering this material. Give it a try or gift it to someone you love!
