"Entertainingly kinetic.... [Berman] transmits science geekery in vivid prose stuffed with unexpected insights and arresting observations.... Absorbing."—Michael Benson, New York Times

"An engagingly quirky popular treatment of the ongoing debate about the nature of space and time in the universe and our place as both observers and participants."Kirkus Reviews

Zoom is an entertaining journey through a variety of scientific fields, accessible even to readers with light science knowledge."—Tobias Mutter, Shelf Awareness

"This light-hearted expedition combines impeccably sound science with a caustic sense of humor...both enlightening and entertaining.... A thoroughly enjoyable and educational journey."—Frank L. Cloutier, The Post and Courier

Fun read 7. August 2014

Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Fun book with good explanations of everyday motion. This book is a good gift for the college student to read before taking Physics 101.
Learned more about sand than I ever knew. Lots of other interesting facts with humor I do not find in most scientific literature. Great biographies of people important to discoveries we take for granted. Read this book.

Another Entertaining Bob Berman Book! 11. August 2014
Von Dan the Man - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Another highly entertaining Bob Berman book! It's actually not *only* aabout speeds and feeds ...there's lots of back-story insights and excellent footnotes in the back that are best read in-flight. Bob is a local here in the Woodstock area and his talks and astronomy classes are all superb as are all his books. His writing style is easy and breeze and he makes science come to life in an entertaining and memorable this book as in all his others. If you have a curious mind and like science and nature you will urely enjoy it!

A Very Entertaining Book 25. Juni 2014
Von John T. Bandy - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition
Bob Berman's books are always good. This one is filled with fascinating facts about motion - from the growth of stalactites to the mysterious communication between entangled quantum particles. Berman is witty, entertaining from beginning to end. I deeply enjoyed this book and I feel confident that others will feel the same way. After you've read this, you'll want to seek out his other books.

Want to feel like Alice in a wonderland just as bizarre as hers - but "real"? Read Zoom! 6. Dezember 2014
Von M. Francis - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Readers of Bob Berman know his exceptional talent for describing complex physical phenomena and scientific theory in terms we can all understand, and this new book continues this tradition and is thus filled with fantastic information about our wondrous environment! Not only a scientific odyssey, this is a personal story of discovery - for Bob and others like him, the scientists and philosophers throughout history that have formed the foundation of our knowledge and understanding of the reality that is our environment and ourselves. This book made me feel like Alice - in a wonderland just as magical and improbable as that of hers, but one that I could understand. Zoom is for everyone, and from the very first page will immerse you in a story that will change the way you look at the world and your place in it forever.
