    We’ve long understood black holes to be the points at which the universe as we know it comes to an end. Often billions of times more massive than the Sun, they lurk in the inner sanctum of almost every galaxy of stars in the universe. Recent research, however, has led to a cascade of new discoveries that have revealed an entirely different side to black holes. As the astrophysicist Caleb Scharf reveals in Gravity’s Engines, these chasms in space-time don’t just vacuum up everything that comes near them; they also spit out huge beams and clouds of matter.

    Gary says: "One of the best science books for non-scientist"
    "Best book here covering this topic!"

    Story
    What did you love best about Gravity's Engines?

    Excellent reading, pleasant to listen. It's a pity that author is not reading other audible books, his voice is perfect for story telling.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Gravity's Engines?

    Most memorable is the description of the just spotted super massive black hole, and properties of these amazing objects.


    Have you listened to any of Caleb Scharf’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I didn't listen to other books of Caleb but I did listen to other readers. I wish Caleb could read all the books.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, it's a addicting book but two moment are exceptionally exciting, description of radiation measured from the center of galaxy and how author described black hole signature he spotted. There were many more though and I recommend this outstanding book to anyone.
