Format: Paperback
Stephen Hawking move over there's a new theoretical genius. This book, both volumes, is so all encompassing in its scope it leaves one breathless. To take so many different sciences and weave them into a new fabric of reality is astonishing. There are answers to so many questions in science today that have left scientists baffled. It covers the earth sciences, astronomy, deep ecology, physics, environmental issues, evolution, extinction, tektites, unusual meteorites, life's ability to transcend entropy, and so much more. Of particular interest is a new model of the Earth that resolves the shortcommings of present theories. New theories on black holes, galaxies, the planets, comets, and so on are included. The dinosaurs really became extinct due to ionizing radiation, not the proposed impact. Planets and galaxies actually eject objects. This review could not possibly do justice to this masterpiece. Moreover, it is uniquely written to be accessible to both the scientifically minded and the layperson who is not so scientifically inclined. Buy it or at least read it, get your library to put in their collection.

6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Robert Johnson on March 10, 2002
Format: Paperback
I have read both volumes of The Vital Vastness. They both were powerful and inspiring. And both were written creatively and with authority. Just about every topic imaginable was covered. I was suprised at what I discovered and became convinced quickly as I read. Written for both the average reader and scientist was interesting and added credibility. While the book's size appears someone lengthy, it was just right when considering you can skip over scientific terminology which was italicized and placed in parantheses. And considering that the book brings forth a truly complete explanation for the workings of the cosmos, and reviews each of the modern theories and how they fit in or don't fit in, the size was appropriate. I cannot wait for the forthcoming title by this author, In Defense of Nature . . . Let me know when it becomes available. I highly recommend this author's titles, and would like to review his third book. The two I read were pure genius. I feel enlightened.
