Much of this is a reveiw of past physics ideas but I thoroughly enjoyed the last two chapters which is mostly new to me - weather or not the time & thermodynamic arrows will reverse if the universe contracts. Physicists may have been wrong about that & may have to adjust their thinnking. The universe doesn't necessarily have to get less chaotic in reverse. Maybe the law of thermodynamics doesn't work as we predicted during contraction - maybe there is another direction besides reverse.
This book - at least the last chapters - encourages new thinking.
