Bose-Einstein Condensate At near absolute zero, matter “exhibits an exotic property in which atoms lose their identity and merge into a mysterious collective”. I did not understand physics and did not want to learn about physics.

In my view Pickover could have easily reduced the number of entries cliffodr about ten percent, devoted an extra page or two to the really revolutionary discoveries and still retained the diversity of topics.

The book is set up in a timelime by discovery, and has a sort of encyclopedia like format with one page description and brief background history of each scientific phenomenon or discovery.

Read my Spanish review here: Although some sections may be too brief to be useful–obviously one cannot glean all knowledge about string theory in a page written for the average reader–the descriptions still manage to give the reader a better understanding of the applications science has for our existence in the universe.

Also each entry is cross-referenced with other discoveries or scientists to give a complete picture. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up.
