Cliff Hays combines his knowledge of the physical universe with philosophical speculation to create a sense of having stepped outside the time for a moment to contemplate the physical world from a thoughtful distance.
I actually jotted down a few notes for points that I wanted to remember and think more about later.
Though I never took a college survey course in physics, I was able to comprehend his remarkably clear explanation of E = mc squared and I came away with a new respect for light as "the only something that is actually two somethings," a wave and a particle at once.
I also enjoyed the philosophical parts, particularly the essay on agnosticism in which he discusses his transition during his teenage years from belief to scientific skepticism. I had a similar experience when I was 15 and could relate. He asks an excellent question: "Would we have existed merely to be at the will at another?"
I am so glad I read this book and I strongly recommend it. Thanks to the author, not only for covering topics that matter but for asking the kinds of questions I am likely to continue asking myself for a long time to come.
