Read 2 times. Last read June 17, 2019 to June 23, 2019.

I think this is an amazing book that I will never finish reading as I will use it as a reference book for the rest of my days. All Professor Close's books are well written, informative, and provide explanations I will never truly understand - but I am not the only one. I am almost at the end of the book and reading about supersymmetry, multiverses, and whether these theories are falsifiable. My guess is that just as Newton's Laws proved inadequate in the early 20th Century, so will Einstein's theories become inadequate in the next 20 years. Inadequate because they don't cover all the new discoveries science is constantly making in many areas. When you read that in order to progress our knowledge, we need energies one thousand trillion times greater than can be generated at the Large Hadron Collider then you realise there's much work to be done.
