Try another book that goes even deeper in only 30 pages.
It's called "Everything About Black Holes" and it explains everything with science. It's on Amazon.

I had hoped this would be an affordable substitute for Birrell and Davies. Unfortunately, it is no substitute. The presentation is very sketchy and abstract. If you are into algebraic QFT and that sort of stuff then maybe you will like this book more than I did.

I ordered this physics book for my brother. He informed me that he received it and was apparently very happy with it. This is all I can say relative to this purchase.
