This is imo going to become required reading for history majors in the future, and I may even try to get it incorporated in high school classes when I'm teaching.

I'm excited for the rest of the book.

I read A Brief History of Time which was good but I think this book has more potential for reaching out to the average reader because it is so accessible.


Just finished it. The warping of spacetime and explanation of gravity by Einstein's general theory of relativity is prob the coolest thing ive ever heard.
