Space and time form the very fabric of the cosmos. Yet they remain among the most mysterious of concepts. Is space an entity? Why does time have a direction? Could the universe exist without space and time? Can we travel to the past?

I have read tons of popular scientific physics books but THIS IS THE BEST BY FAR! Although a little lengthy sometimes, it really brings you to the current frontiers of science and will definitely leave you marveled!

In his landmark best seller The Tipping Point, Malcolm Gladwell redefined how we understand the world around us. Now, in Blink, he revolutionizes the way we understand the world within. Blink is a book about how we think without thinking, about choices that seem to be made in an instant, in the blink of an eye, that actually aren't as simple as they seem. Why are some people brilliant decision makers, while others are consistently inept?

Banal !!

After having read a bunch of such popular scientific books, I can fairly say that this is the WORST! Long story short: It is just a collection of banal "knowledge" that, in combination with partly irrelevant/lengthy anecdotes, does not surpass the worldly wisdom my grandmother used to tell me. JUST BANAL!
