Scott's Review:
5 out of 5 stars on December 27, 1999

This is a great book. It manages to simplify the theories behind the understanding of space and time that scientists have developed down to terms that virtually everyone can understand. I found this book a fascinating read. The first half or so of it seemed to be a good refresher of my teachings in high school, and from there it departed into the more modern theories, such as quantum mechanics, and the attempts to reconcile current theories into a grand unified theory. Some of the book can be a twisting experience to read, for instance, when Stephen Hawking starts discussing imaginary time, and the time arrows, but for the most part, it's very easy to grasp, and extremely thought provoking. Highly recommended, though, you'll probably find, like me, that you need to re-read the book every now and then to actually be able to retain any of it.
