As Greene puts it: I felt like he was being fair though but maybe I was just dazzled by any of the mathematics he would throw into footnotes that I wouldn’t have the first idea on what to do with if someone handed me even the simplest one and asked me to solve it. I read this over a seven month period and most days only read a couple of pages. I don’t buy into the idea that was Parmenides only goal though.

The Fabric of the Cosmos

Apr 11, Wayne Barrett rated it really liked it Shelves: While the book may be a bit cosmso simple at times, more quantitative detail is available in the notes at the end of the book which I strongly recommend you read, to get more detailand bibliographic references grsene pretty good.

I’ve never had the need to know all the parts of a flower, but if I had been taught something about what went into discovering some of the coxmos of x or say about the real awesomeness of evolution I’d probably have perked up and gotten interested.

He says that there would be a way to get all the bits of egg to fly back at the right speed and reconstitute. Glancing at the reviews for Brian Greene’s overview of how we view the stuff of which our universe is made, it seems that some people base their rating and opinion on how much they agree with the science, or how credible they find it.


On one level Parmenides can be thought of as the logical foil to the pre-Socratic materialists, the voice that says your theory is nice but what about x? Is it engaging or it just throws at you facts without passion?

Whether you re You probably know more about physics than you think. I understood that only by asking “why” were physicists able to develop a theory that explains the finetuning, and go beyond the Big Bang as the creation theory of the universe. I can now talk basics about String Theory and physics at a cocktail party. Sep 08, Gary rated it it was amazing.

Brian greene ,I admire his resilience in explanation ,this feature is extremely rare with other cosmologists, he could show me another realm away from my own perspective I acquired many remarkable transformations in my ideas about the universe which I used to think it No longer had to be altered More profoundly talking I believe now that I have not finished it yet: He says that if you watch a film of an egg falling and braking that you could reverse the film and there is nothing in the laws of physics to decide which direction the film travelled in that must be the right direction.

Mar 13, Greg rated it it was amazing Shelves: Dec 04, Jen Padgett Bohle rated it liked it Recommends it for: Furthermore, and this may be more a publisher’s error, but the book promised discussion on black holes and the like- my favourite of all astronomical topics.

Books by Brian Greene. That’s a problem with writing a great book — it’s hard to match the same level of excitement in the next book.

Some might find his poetic geeky gushes cheesy, but others like myself will spend the next several evenings lying outside on their lawns, staring at the stars, and just basking in the awesomeness of it all. May 06, Kristen added it Shelves: I remember the most important cosjos, but the intricacies didn’t stick with me. The appearance of the Eleatic Stranger is cosmmos the two dialogues that come at the end of Socrates life, before the series of dialogues that make up the trial and death of Socrates.


See, right there, when your brain registered the p-word, a black hole of anxiety opened up in the pit of your stomach from which nothing can escape.

Furthermore, Greene is obviously passionate about the subject matter, and that is something that is contagious. The task then for any science writer is to couch these concepts in colloquial terms and familiar experiences, and no one does it better than Brian Greene.

Why does time have a direction? I read the hardcover version, and even here they are small, with no colour and in fairly awful quality. Gentle reader, I highly recommend this book.

The Fabric of the Cosmos: Space, Time, and the Texture of Reality by Brian Greene

In my case, my anthropic stance was actually an attempt on my part to avoid a deeper question, an attempt to posit an answer where there wasn’t one yet. Indeed, some scientists such as Lee Smolin are saying out loud that string theory has been given too much rope for too long, and it is time to face the reality that it has not produced any crisp, testable tejiro nor is it likely to for a while.

Is this book suitable for people with no science background, not even a basic one?
