Reviews

Deeply satisfying.... [An] engrossing blend of theory, history, and anecdote.
Among the best of [its] genre to appear in recent years.--Malcolm W. Browne
Superb. It is what many other books about their subject ought to have been and were not.... I think the book itself will be a strong force.--Carl Sagan
Readers seeking to go beyond today's headlines will not find a higher authority (or a better storyteller) to discuss the cosmo's most bizarre features...Masterful and intriguing.--Marcia Bartusiak
Black Holes & Time Warps reveals the scientific enterprise as very few books do; it richly overflows with history, modern physics, the excitement of discovery, and rare, firsthand scientific styles and temperaments.--Alan Lightman
