  • I actually read the digital version of this book while sitting in my College Library Yay Big Olive Which might tell you how good it is, since I read the whole book in two sittings while in the painful computer lab Best introduction to Cosmic Super Physics you can get And it s great to get you started down the path of reading and complex books on this subject.



  • The title s pretty accurate The book covers the standard popular physics book basics of relativity, then goes into detail about the ways that relativity allows time travel, especially involving wormholes It developed from a lecture that the author gave to high schoolers to recruit them to study physics At one point he says that it was written with a teenage audience in mind, which could have put me off, but I m glad it didn t It is indeed a book that you could start without ever having heard of [...]


  • I would recommend this to anyone interested in science You do not need to know any background physics he explains everything in a way that is very easy to understand and does not require any background knowledge Most importantly this book was fun as well as being very informative


  • A crash course into astrophysics, particles physics, quantum mechanics and of course black holes, wormholes and time machines.


  • This was quite an amazing book, even though he actually doesn t believe in the possibility of time travel he thinks the only way it would work was if the past, present, and future existed all together as one moment, and he believes that would negate free will Which it doesn t, of course, so he and I disagree there But overall, I enjoyed it and learned enough to make my brain buzz with all my newly acquired knowledge and ideas.I particularly loved this section, on quantum particles If we measure [...]


  • actual rating 4.5 Stay true to its titleThis is amazing book for non scientists new comers to this field.Why you should read this book if you love knowing stuff about universe, black holes etc The writing is very easy going and concepts are made very easy to understand If you have read any other book on these topics, I still recommend this book, because it further clarifies some concepts It s a short book, that s why it doesn t get too dense for not so smart guys like me.Why you shouldn t read t [...]


  • Excellent book whose purpose is to familiarize the reader with the universe, how it was created, what it is made of, and how time affects everything.In order to explain how time travel could be possible At least in theory , we are treated to a history of science, form the precursors of Newton, to the successors of Einstein.Despite the fact that this book is now 11 years old, it remains a good and compact introduction to physics, astronomy and cosmology.I particularly appreciated the description [...]


  • This is a great book for the layman enthusiast like myself It got off to a very slow start I thought I was in for a book written for 12 year olds However, as the book added on and to the base content, I was damn motivated to continue, just to see if I could wrap my head around each concept.My biggest fear with this book is that it is now dated by a few years, and new advances have proven or disproved some of the theorems discussed That s ok though, as I do not need to write my own research pap [...]


  • The content of this book was not too bad and along the lines of other books I have read on this topic I like Jim as a writer and a presenter and am generally impressed by his work My criticism of this book and its low rating are grounded on it being ludicrously overpriced for such a slim volume I hope that Jim Al Khalili had no influence over the price and that the blame can be put on a greedy publisher.


  • Intriguing read Al Khalili keeps his use scientific jargon on the down low and thoroughly explains unfamiliar terms and concepts, presents scientific evidence from a relatively objective viewpoint, and isn t dry and boring like so many other authors of the nonfiction science genre I would recommend his book to anyone interested in understanding the possibility of black holes, wormholes, multiple dimensions, and time travel in our fascinating universe.


  • I m very into this topic But I m used to use my imagination Fourth, fifth etc dimension, parallel universes and space curving is little bit above my othervise very colorful imagination deformed by sci fi series What i can t imagine, that i don t get I will definitely give a chance to this book again.


  • Interesting, if somewhat condescending The author seems to be a rather conservative physicist, which makes me wonder why he wrote the book at all Nevertheless, it s loaded with facts about high energy physics and easy to grok explanations.


  • I am so grateful to this book for helping me visualize a fourth dimension I ve used the 2D world 3D sphere analogy many times with remarkable success in helping people visualize it too I recommend this book to anyone and everyone.





  • It s a good while since I read Jim Al Khalili s Black Holes, Wormholes and Time Machines, but I will be forever grateful to him for teaching me how to visualise the fourth dimension Really.




  • Great book, bit slow to start due to laying down the ground work but worth it when things start to get weird.
