The Fabric of the Cosmos: Space, Time, and the Texture of Reality by Brian Greene
The Fabric of the Cosmos: Space, Time, and the Texture of Reality

Anat, September 12, 2013

There are times in one's life, when a book touches it in a manner that is life altering. Whether the ideas, expressed in a clear voice and understandable phrasing with highly convincing scientific arguments, or down to earth examples and subtle humor and delightful amusement which makes the not so easy scientific facts, accepted. As for life altering effect - the fascinating explanation of the huge universe and its wonders made it easier to accept that although our existence is extremely short compared to it, we matter! WE ARE STARDUST!

Kobo Arc Tablet eReader (32 GB)

Anat, June 4, 2013

I have been dreaming about a tablet for a long time. I either could not afford it or the cheap ones had no features that I wanted. It seems that I found my true love. It is sleek and connected to my favorite bookseller (I bought many books from Powell's). Since my eyesight is getting a little worse (age - you know), portable -the perfect solution and mobility and the apps will help me consulting "live" dictionaries for my Italian course.
Cheers

The Swerve: How the World Became Modern by Stephen Greenblatt
The Swerve: How the World Became Modern

Anat, January 30, 2013

The fascinating tale of a search for a poem that ultimately changed the world. Reads like a thriller. With style and the amazing ability to excite an intellectual curiosity, S. Greenblat brings us history, philosophy literature and above all an Epicurean intellectual pleasure/

The Fabric of the Cosmos: Space, Time, and the Texture of Reality by Brian Greene
The Fabric of the Cosmos: Space, Time, and the Texture of Reality

Anat, September 1, 2011

With lucid, well organised prose, with authority and passion, Brian Greene introduces the wonders of the universe. It unravels as a fantastic fairy tale, with enthousiastic participation of the greatest minds of all times. Vulgarisation but not vulgar, it allows the regular folks to dip into this magic and come out starry eyed. Great book. Anyone who has ever wandered how does it all hold together and since when, must read the book.
