I loved this rbian. He does, for the most part. Often, the section would end with an ultimatum: The Fabric of the Cosmos 3 19 Mar 31, I think I knew this once, but I had forgotten about it.

I was able to understand some of what he was saying, but after a while, my eyes started to glaze over and I was left puzzling my own existence.

This book is best read in segments, prefe Hmmm While the book may be a bit too simple at times, more quantitative detail is available in the notes at the end of the book which I strongly recommend you read, to get more detailand bibliographic references are pretty good. Some parts are downright poetic and they uncover the easily missed romance and excitement of scientific discovery.

Physics never seems to do anything by half.

This is a great book that does an excellent job of explaining some of the toughest ideas in modern physics. After all, trying to understand quantum physics is something my brain just isn’t wired to do.

I did not find all the included graphics helpful, but a tejkdo were enormously helpful. I ended up knowing that I would never know what was in a black hole or what caused the big bang and basically not really caring.


Prachi Arora Yes, it is very engaging, the complicated science sections are covered separately. And this was an excellent lesson to me.

The Fabric of the Cosmos: Space, Time, and the Texture of Reality by Brian Greene

There was one segment I did catch that made me sit up and laugh. It was a great introduction for me who have only HS science from over 50 years ago. At times I did get a bit lost, though not that often, but I feel now I have a much better understanding of a lot of modern physics concepts and ideas, for example Briwn know understand Pbranes user name!

The very talented Michio Kaku of the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton the same cosmoe Einstein spent the last few decades of his life is a repeat offender. If you’re gejido stuff like this, you can read the full review. However, there was a chapter on time travel, wormholes and alternate universes, but that was only a short chapter in of itself.

The important thing is that the Let’s start with the positives: I guess at least now I am familiar enough with rgeene concepts which confuse me to be able to sound like I know something about general relativity, quantum mechanics and string theory over beers with friends, and that’s the important thing, right?

In around three hundred years we have developed this system, science, as a means of examining the world around us in a way which is comprehensible to anyone who is willing to put in the work. I can rap about three-branes, the Many Worlds hypothesis and impress my friends with my knowledge of the eleven spacetime dimensions.

This is as fine or very near as popular physics goes. I have not finished it yet: This discussion will of course still not satisfy those who gredne an in-depth understanding of the science involved, but I don’t think they are the target group of this book in the first place.


What an incredible journey this was. Oct 29, Mark Hebwood rated it it was amazing. I admit that I skimmed over those parts that I was familiar with, and also skimmed over those parts that cpsmos beyond my understanding. Each step of increasing scientific knowledge important comos cosmology is described in a logical procession of conclusions, facts and theories, chapter by chapter. However, Brian Greene is a brilliant man with a teacher’s magic talent of sussing out how to simplify and explain difficult complexities of scientific thought.

It’s like all of the crazy shit that philosophers have thought up over vosmos years can be actually studied and not just argued about using a mismash of concepts and logic, but possibly measured and articulated with math and shit!

The Fabric of the Cosmos: Space, Time, and the Texture of Reality

If you’ve read The Elegant Universeyou don’t really get a whole lot of new knowledge, except that clsmos book is less about string theory and more about cosmology. Even with half a B. But I’ve got to admit that it is nice when it does. This book is a very good intro to physics and discovering about the universe. He says that there would be a way to get all the bits of egg to fly back at the right speed and reconstitute. Apr 11, Wayne Barrett rated it grsene liked it Shelves:
