I envision a time in the near future when your AI assistant will be reading along with you and automatically looking stuff up for you. For now google comes in handy. Here is an image that goes with Chapter 3. http://www.warwickshirerailways.com/l...

I like how this book describes the work of other scientist like Einstein and Hamilton, when Dirac encounters those ideas. I first encountered Quaternions which Hamilton invented when reading about 3D graphics in game development books.

How many people are reading or finished reading this book? I am about 30% done.

I am enjoying this book very much, but keep getting distracted by novels that I am reading with other groups.
