This is a fun and interesting history of the fathers of modern physics. The books start out a little slow as it orients the reader, but if you stick with it, by chapter 3 you will start to connect with the real world characters of Neils Bohr and Albert Einstein and the many other important scientist who discovered and developed our modern day view of space time and quantum mechanics.
The dynamics between Einstein and Bohr plays out like a 50 year chess match between two grand masters. Each move well thought out and calculated. Each move brilliant and almost flawless, but somehow the other seems to find that little flaw and is able to advance their view slightly further. Even today, these two views are still being heavily debated and it is still not certain who's universal view will ultimately prevail Bohr or Einstein, or maybe the final answer will be both.
This is a very boring read. He recites histories of a very long list of inventory of technology advancements, for example the transitor, microprocessor, dramm, fiber, biotech, blaw blaw blaw blaw blaw......
