Editorial Reviews

This course is comprised of 12 30-minute lectures on two DVDs, with an accompanying study guide. Black holes are regions of space in which gravity is so strong that nothing, not even light, can escape. They are frequently referred to in popular culture; this course explains what they are and their ramifications.

I have purchased several "Great Courses" from the company that produces them. I don't think that many people want to view them more than a few times, so buying them "used" through Amazon.com is a good bet. This course was very good -- not too difficult to understand, but not simplified to mush, either. I expect to get some more titles through Amazon, as well as to re-sell them there too.

Alex Filippenko is a very passionate speaker who knows how to get his points across with total understanding. I found myself learning so much faster than I normally would.

Dr. Filippenko makes a sometimes difficult subject easy to understand. I would recommend all his work, that is, all his work offered via Great Courses.

Professor Filippenko does his usual job of adding enthusiasm, humor and clarity into the subject. A very good series!
