Sorry, I did not liked it. I like physics and cosmology reading, but this book is a cogitative rambling, run around. With no connection to science or philosophy, with name thrown in for free, as to justify ones ideas and belief . The book is very poorly structured, with a lot inconclusive jabbering. At time seems to be delivered by a religious sect seller whilst proselytising. Is morass of ideas and words, but unfortunately it does not deliver nor enlighten the readers. Its a shame, as I was expecting a philosopher scientific point of view of the photon. This book is exoteric and alchemistical enough, rather than scientific....... MAYBE THE NEXT BOOK
He should have structure and worded this book in a less exoterically and alchemistical way
I feel sorry for ML not easy to read a lot of jabbering
Humble suggestion, Maybe re write the book
I think I have said enough
I entirely agree with Jim Baggott . This book, in my opinion, is very realistic and well written.
It reinforces, if not going a step further than “Time Reborn by Lee Smolin)”
I am not qualified to pass judgement on theoretical physics, but I have to agree with the author. it sound like the judgement passed by Mr Baggot in criticising theoretical physics and addressing it as Fairytale physics, is well founded and well deserved.
Unfortunately, science is a game of patience. to prove or disprove a theory can take some time. But lately scientists have been expounding theoretical work such as ‘strings, supersymmetry, SUSIE, brane worlds” works that that can only be proven mathematically.
This book provides a much-needed antidote. It’s informed, comprehensive, and balanced.
Baggot in Farewell to Reality and Lee Smolin inTime Reborn both are one hundred percent spot on in their assumptions. Theoretical science has become more of a religion than a proven science. I will most certainly read it again. And certainly recommend it. The book is well narrated and supremely written
The author honesty
Extremely credible and very professionally
I think we need more author prepared to challenge the status quo
Worth reading it
Time Reborn by Lee SmolinI vehemently agreed with what Les Smolin had to say in his last book, Trouble with Physic. In my humble opinion, I think this book goes a step further, it is a milestone of its own right. Even though many of the ideas Smolin is arguing in Time Reborn, are hopefully, not labeled as speculative challenges, L. S. offers to an unaware reader, a head spinning and entertaining way to look and reconsider the notion of TIME in Physic. In reassessing what we know, thought and told about time. Just being a humans tool, to measure events and by being a figment of our imagination. Without time we would not be able to measure, the speed of a photon. I got to confess this book flow well, but I will need to re-listen it again. Please LS write more books Rgds Luigi P Porcu
I like the way Lee write and his mental process to dissect and postulate his belief
Sean is an excellent reader
Most certainly not. Due to the nature of the subject, this book certainly deserve more than reading or listening
Lee, please write more books, for the non scientist at large
This is an amazing and mesmerizing book, a real window on our universe. Chris Impey illustrates one of the most complex topics in cosmology and physics in a pleasurable and page turner manner
This book its a rarity on its own
Andy is an Excellent reader although my IPod version was recorded with base a bit to high and therefore there is a noticeable reverb that can be annoying at time
How something so complex can be made so basic and interesting to everyone!!! Excellent teaching materials. I only wished it was longer
TOP BOOK please Chris do more...............
The reader's voice is difficult to overcome. Couldn't get into the story. Found it false, but may be marred by the reader
Excellent balance of humor and emotion. Feel for the family members and become involved in their lives.
well written and narated by Ian McEwan. Difficult to accept outcome of couple. I feel all couples have issues and difficulties that they have to over come. Love usually gets them through. I found it hard to accept this couple's decision.
I have read all books written by this author, but rather dissapointed with this one. Didn't quite hit the emotion that Maggie managed to find in her first book. Story good, but could have jelled a lot better.
