really liked it

If Brian Greene had written my science textbooks I'm pretty sure I'd be a physicist right now! Once again the author of Elegant Universe has created a book that makes the most complex and obscure theoretical physics into something accessible for the layperson. More of an overview than his previous book this can be a slow read, but only because each chapter is filled with so many big ideas and wow moments it's a lot to stuff in your brain. Using plenty of metaphors and avoiding the heavy math Greene explains how the universe works at the smallest of levels and gives tantalizing clues as to what the next great scientific discoveries could be. I don't know that I'll be able to retain much of the specific, but the broad strokes of this book are something that I'll be chewing on for a long time.
