Brian Greene, The Fabric of the Cosmos

The Fabric of the Cosmos (Space, time, and the texture of reality) The Fabric of the Cosmos by Brian Greene

My review


rating: 3 of 5 stars
A very well-written and clear explanation of the major topics in relativity, quantum mechanics, and cosmology. It gets considerably less persuasive when the author starts in on string theory; Greene is a string theory proponent, but even his enthusiastic and partisan description of the theory seems pretty speculative. “Yes, there’s no experimental evidence, but it’s SO COOL” is a big change from the book’s earlier sections, and pretty weak to boot.
