REREADING THIS.


This is really very good.

This was a fun read. Enjoyable because Reeves has managed to explain very clearly and very succinctly what many other scientists would make very hard to understand. It is also very sweet.

I should add that it was recommended by Manny Rayner.

Recommends it for: Teens who want to know more about science
Yesterday afternoon, we were walking past the children's bookstore just off the route de Carouge when my eye was caught by Le petit livre du caca . I had to go in and buy it; the assistant tried to persuade me that I also wanted Le petit livre de l'amour, and while I waited for her to go and get a copy I picked up this charming little volume and started leafing through it. I eventually walked out with both the book I'd originally come in for and the one I picked up by accident. The shit and the ...more

Uma boa opção para quem tem crianças curiosas e que fazem perguntas difíceis sobre o universo. E também para assentar algumas ideias, embora, como o próprio autor explica por diversas vezes, o que se toma por certo num determinado momento acaba muitas vezes por ser "desmentido". Não aprendi propriamente nada de novo porque vi vários documentários recentes sobre este tema, mas muitos não saberão, por exemplo, que cada galáxia tem um buraco negro no seu centro...

Atenção a algumas incorrecções. Tra

Intéressant petit livre pour les débutants dans l'Univers. En ce qui me concerne, ce livre ne m'a pas apporté grand chose, mais un petit rappel sur les notions de base m'a fait du bien. Le Big Bang, Les trous noirs, La matière et ses origines, L'Univers en expansion continue, et la question de l'existence d'un architecte de l'Univers ... tous ces sujets sont abordés dans ce petit ouvrage. A lire :)

An inspiring book not just for the very young, this diialogue between scientific Grandfather abd inquisitive Grandaughter goes quite deep into a few quite philosophical questions about life and our origin as "dust of the stars"...
Loved reading it, it's informative but its inspirational role goes further than its informative function.
Definitely a good read at any age!

Les petits-enfants de Hubert Reeves sont franchement intelligents ! Mais plus sérieusement, si vous êtes un adulte et que vous décidez de vous plonger dans la lecture de ce livre, il faudra simplement faire abstraction de tout l'enrobage un peu mièvre nécessaire au dialogue entre un grand-père et sa petite-fille.
Si vous y parvenez, vous serez récompensé car vous apprendrez forcément quelque chose dans ce bouquin fort bien vulgarisé.

Explications simples. Très agréable à lire cette "discussion" avec sa petite fille de 13 ans!

Recommended to Bettie☯ by: Manny
Translated by Donald Winkler

Dedication (which seems to be a little out of whack!):

I have height grandchildren: Raphaëlle, Dorian, Elsa, Cyprien, Massis, and Noë.

I copied that straight from the book and I count that as six children rather than 'height'.

From the Prelude:

In a world where marriages are not as durable as they once were, grandparents have become important reference points, all the more so in that they tend to share the lives of their grandchildren for longer periods of time.

J'avoue avoir sorti celui là de ma pile pour tenter d'approcher de mon challenge des 30 un peu plus vite car "c'est un livre qui se lit vite" me disait M.Pap depuis deux ans déjà. "Lis le! Lis le!fascinant" insistait-il.
ça m'a demandé un peu d'effort, pas scientifique pour un sous que je suis, j'ai même un peu débordé sur 2013.
J'y ai certes appris un certains nombre de choses que je ne devrais plus ignorer car l'univers est bien fascinant,je le concède, mais une bonne moitié m'est passé un peu a

Had to read this for French, though I seem to have finished it before she even assigned any pages....

Wonderful read!

Good book but not as good as the one from Sopjie Vauclair I just read
