Waves. If, like me, your college physics course was the equivalent of “Physics for Poets,” you are likely to enjoy reading Janna Levin’s book about gravitational waves titled, Black Hole Blues and Other Songs from Outer Space. Using a light touch in presenting the science, Levin focuses on the people, the personalities, and their stories. The result is a readable and entertaining way of picking up something new about science while gaining resonance with scientists by Levin’s showing that their lives are as messy as our own.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
