The book was interesting, but I do agree that it was more technical and less descriptive than I would have liked. It was also heavy on physics, which limited my interest. People I know who are scientists, though, really enjoyed it.

The one thing I found really fascinating about the book is how many times these people who came up with these brilliant insights actually got it wrong about other stuff. It seems like even people this interested in how the world worked still only got it right a few times.
