Return to Book Page. All-in-all, satisfying, funny, and informative. Have a look into its true nature. I can only recommend it to anybody who does not have bgian formal degree in science and wants to learn more about cosmology but is a bit frustrated about the lack of depth popular accounts of this topic typically provide.

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

His book is very readable and he has a great gift of explaining complex subjects with an amazing clarity. He speaks equally well for himself, for nrian wider theoretical community, and to you, looking through the window.

Gentle reader, I highly recommend this book. He says himself that he will only use metaphors to explain the ideas, but even so he remains respectful of his subject, he does not dumb things down, clsmos I found the metaphors for the most part evocative and helpful. See all 4 questions about The Fabric of the Cosmos….

After all, trying to understand quantum physics is something my brain just grian wired to do. After reading this book, you’ll always have unfinished business in discovering more and more about the universe.

I like to talk shit about science sometimes. Want to Read saving….

Greene’s book, the first I’ve read by him, shows why it is worth reading a range of books on the same or closely connected areas of science. Yet they remain among the most mysterious of concepts. And your waning interest was a metaphor for quantum non-locality.

The Fabric of the Cosmos

By the way, I loved this book! Luckily, this book squares a lot of things and sets them to rights for me. Though this made Feynman an tenido effective educator, he was never able to write a book for want of literary chops. The very talented Michio Kaku of the Tejiod for Advanced Study at Princeton the same place Einstein spent the last few decades of his life is a repeat offender.


Whether you realize it or not, you just visualized some of the more important natural phenomena that govern the world around us.

I can’t, in any way, cosnos the worth of this ability. The appearance of the Eleatic Stranger is in the two dialogues that come at the end of Socrates life, before the series of dialogues that make up the trial and death of Socrates. I understand that Inflationary Theory is not merely a tweak of Big Bang theory to enable it to fit observed facts, but a whole new way of looking at tejidoo growth of the universe that actually explains much more about the fundamental physics.

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

I can rap about three-branes, the Many Worlds hypothesis and impress my friends with my knowledge of the eleven spacetime dimensions. Or maybe learned about the difficulties still facing scientists when dealing with the subatomic level, and the weirdness of quantum uncertainty and entanglement might have gotten me more interested and wanting to know more in a chemistry class than endlessly learning how to balance electrons between elements or whatever that fruitless exercise was called.

Now, the last negative aspect of brin book is the fact that there’s not a whole lot of new things here. Although the book is maybe a bit too simple at times, I really enjoyed how Greene is able to present some very tejifo concepts by gradually building up ideas. Author Brian Green is to be commended for his brilliant attempt to communicate the intricacies of particle physics, general and special relativity, the Big Bang, quantum mechanics and, yes–even string theory–to the interested lay person.

When a weakness is found the theory must be re-examined.

That is not to say that I assume the author is more knowledgeable than me simply because he has more letters after his name, but because he grounds his claims briaj background and the weight of evidence that is needed for a scientific hypothesis to become a generally accepted brkan. Upon reflection this seemed to me very much like them coming out of another dimension. He makes the reader appreciate and even enjoy the excitement of discovery. Your underarms began to radiate heat as your mind conjured memories of stuffy high greene laboratories.


I can now talk basics about String Theory and physics at a cocktail party. Greene will outright warn you to skip ahead if its getting too dense, which is nice.

Greene is an awesome writer. And for the wonders of the human mind to work out these things. Even cosmic inflation seems to have inflated the universe to a ridiculous extent in the first nanosecond of the universe. However, Brian Greene is a brilliant man with a teacher’s magic talent of sussing out how to simplify and explain difficult complexities of teido thought.

Hushour rated it it was amazing.

Refresh and try again. But he uses a very familiar and somewhat playful example to illustrate the point. Thus, overall, the book is extremely engaging and exciting, and it’s one of those books that are very much, in many ways, unputdownable. Apr 11, Wayne Barrett rated it really liked it Shelves: And from page “that moments–the events making up the spacetime loaf–just are. What I found most interesting would probably horrify the author because, while he didn’t say so in so many words, he apparently really believes that physics is, or can be, the answer to everything.

Additional funding for this program is provided by the Arthur Vining Davis Foundations, and by the U. My problem is exacerbated by the fact that it seems that every time there is a problem in Physics we are having trouble solving we just make up something invisible to solve it.

Towards the end of the book, however, the ideas get so far removed from human intuition that I would have want What an incredible journey this was.
