A LONG time contributor to Scientific American Magazine, Krauss has been at the forefront of theoretical physics and cosmological inquiry for decades. If you've kept up with his SciAm articles over these many years you might -- *might* -- feel a bit cheated because it's pretty much a compilation of those articles! But I found this book lyric and beautiful nonetheless. Nothing might not be as empty as you thought -- or nothing might be so devoid of anything that it acts in ways that are not just counterintuitive but downright unintuitive. Read it and decide for yourself. I have my suspiscions. Einstein was so remarkable for his insights. He was way ahead of his own thought and the universe's unfolding mysteries. If for no other reason, read it that you might more fully appreciate this.
