Recommended for: douglas adams fans, philosophy/physics geniuses
Read in January, 2009

there's so much I don't know about quantum physics -- but this book makes me really want to know. it starts off about a slightly salty british PhD student, but quickly becomes about using an acid-like substance to bend the space-time continuum (which happens to be a favorite subject of mine.) there's just enough racy sex and true romance (that is to say, the bare minimum) to weave all the quarks together. it moves at an exciting pace, but you want to stop reading every few pages and just think about it all. hip and techie at the same time.
