In this masterfully written and brilliantly informed work, Dr. Thorne, the Feynman Professor of Theoretical Physics at Caltech, leads readers through an elegant, always human, tapestry of interlocking themes, answering the great question: what principles control our universe and why do physicists think they know what they know?

Subtitled “Einstein’s Outrageous Legacy,” and featuring an introduction by Stephen Hawking, the only down side of this book is that it is slightly dated (this is a reprint of the 1995 paperback edition of the 1994 original).
