Reviews

"[Levin] covers ... fascinating ground....She writes passages that may make you either feel claustrophobic for only living in three visible dimensions or see the night sky in an entirely new way." --Baltimore City Paper "Science as it is lived.... [Levin's] book is a gift to those people who want to think big but came to a screeching halt about two dozen pages into... A Brief History of Time." --Discover "Levin unpacks the technicalities with a skill honed from giving many lectures. . . . A book to be applauded." -- The Scotsman "Lovely and utterly original. . . . Mixing lucid arguments with anecdotes and personal experiences, Levin makes it easy to understand seemingly complicated subjects such as transfinite arithmetic, naked singularities and compact spaces. . . . A marvelous diary that makes a reader long to meet the author. --American Scientist
