Imagine time moving forward to 2012 and now I am reading my Kindle version of this book by Schroeder. I get to the section on Special and General Relativity and finally after an easy read of just a few pages, actually understand it.
I cannot praise this book enough. Especially the review of modern physics in 2012. I was continually impressed with how the author explained previously mysterious topics (even Vector Calculus :-)) in simple terms that left the reader delighted that they could in fact understand previously incomprehensible topics of physics. Even the historic explanations on Newtons Laws and Maxwell's Equations were brilliant and a must read for every high school math and physics teacher.
The later stages of the book introduce the reader to Higgs Field, M-Theory, string theory and even recent hypotheses which are yet to be proved or disproved. But the ideas behind the "2 branes" and "the bulk" as possible solutions to the challenge of both space and time travel are really intriguing.Read more ›
This is a book any young budding mathematician or physicist will enjoy. The level of explanation is ideal for anyone wanting to better understand subjects like special relativity. In fact although I was fortunate to study special relativity in 1965 under Professor Herman Bondi at Kings College, London, I never really understood the basic theory. Robert Schroeder is able to explain this subject (and even prove the simple formulas) with wonderful clarity that a 16 year old high school "arts student" could comprehend. This is a breakthrough in bringing so many of the latest concepts of modern physics to the average person. I am writing this review still halfway through the book. I cannot wait to read and understand how he has built his theories of possible UFO propulsion systems upon what is a very obviously passionate and clear comprehension of the very latest theories of our CERN physicists.
Whether you want a layman's understanding of special relativity, general relativity, quantum mechanics or even learn a lttle of the latest mathematics, then this is a book for you, your husband or father.
But, don't fear, Bob really does do an excellent job of making this easy for you to understand. It all starts with him splitting the book in to three categories - the real key is to start at the beginning and start there - don't jump to the back "best part" and try to start reading from there, you will be too confused!!!
Trust me, I did that, then started over at the beginning, and the second time around the book was much easier to understand when I got to the third section! :-)
Also, as an aside, Bob did a live presentation on his book (via Skype) at our local Northern California MUFON Chapter and that was an added bonus hearing him further explain the material in the book. So, if you find out that Bob is doing a live presentation in your area.... GO!

This book is where ufology would be if taken seriously. Whether the author's opinions are true or not, time will tell, but at least this goes beyond most books that just rehash... Read morePublished 10 months ago by Firefly Bill
I enjoyed this book very much even though it will take several more reads to get through the technical parts! Read morePublished 23 months ago by dennis fink
