Masterful storyteller and teacher
Reviewed in the United States on June 27, 2018
This is one of the best books I have ever read in any genre. Greene is a master teacher, and uses metaphors and analogies to explain complicated topics like relativity and quantum mechanics without using math. This book is accessible to almost anyone, and does a terrific job of explaining things like why time slows down when we move faster, why there is an arrow of time (including the concept of entropy), all the weirdness associated with quantum measurements and what that means for reality, and why very small things behave differently than very large things. There are a few times when the book gets a little deep, but Greene lets you off the hook by providing summaries and giving you the option to jump ahead to a designated page number. I stuck it out and was glad I did; as he put it, the results are amazing--and they are. Although I have read several books on this subject, none come close to the transfer of knowledge accomplished here.
