How to Love the Universe: A Scientist’s Odes to the Hidden Beauty Behind the Visible World
Excitement. I remember in college that there were two introductory physics classes: the one for physics majors met for three hours starting at 8am on Saturday mornings; the other was called “physics for poets” and met after lunch for about an hour every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I took neither but realized decades later that the majors spent their Saturday mornings in the late 1960s learning things that were later disproven. For them, and for any reader with eyes open to the world, there’s a great book to consider by Stefan Klein. Titled, How to Love the Universe: A Scientist’s Odes to the Hidden Beauty Behind the Visible World, this book offers great images, well-written prose and an attitude of excitement about the world. It’s never too late to learn a thing or two about particle physics, even if you think you already know it all.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
