He won the Nobel prize in physics in 1979 and has worked with such distinguished personages as the late Richard P. Feynman. In short, he is one of the leading minds in his field.

Rezension bezieht sich auf: The First Three Minutes: A Modern View Of The Origin Of The Universe (Taschenbuch)
Stephen Weinberg received his Ph.D. in theoretical physics from Harvard university and has taught at the university of Texas for decades. He won the Nobel prize in physics in 1979 and has worked with such distinguished personages as the late Richard P. Feynman. In short, he is one of the leading minds in his field.
The First Three Minutes is an unusual book in astronomy / cosmology because it is now over 20 years old & yet it is STILL one of the classics of the "story" of the universe for the layman & non-expert. The book takes us on an exhilerating journey all the way back to the Plank epoch (10^-43 seconds after the Big Bang). Weinberg also deals with Einstein's theory of Relativity (which predicted the Big Bang), the Hubble Red Shift (the discovery that the universe is expanding) as well as the detection of the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) in the 1960's by Ralph Wilson and Arno Penzias. All three of these factors, plus numerous other details all form the foundation for the way most scientists think about our universe (presently known as the Big Bang theory).
One of the things about Weinberg that I admire is that, like Carl Sagan, he concedes that he MIGHT be wrong, but that what he has to work with is the best paradigm available. This is brutally honest & also quite a refreshing approach. I tire quickly of reading science books that are written by individuals who are so conceited as to believe they know everything there is to know. One certainly does not have to worry about that type of arrogance with Weinberg.
So, if you even have a passing interest in cosmology, I would HIGHLY recommend this book. The book may be especially appealing to many people as it is 150 pages in & out (anyone who has ever browsed the science shelf at their local bookstore can readily see that there have been far longer books written on this topic). But oh, what a plethora of info that Weinberg furnishes in those 150 pages!
All in all, this is a very readable book which deals with a quite recondite topic.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Simply Fantastic, 16. Juli 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The First Three Minutes: A Modern View Of The Origin Of The Universe (Taschenbuch)
Steven Weinberg is just incredible. He is able to bring complex material that high level physicists have trouble imagining to the general public. His book is easy to read, though not easy to understand. This isn't "High Energy Physics for the Complete Idiot," but it does provide simple conceptual (not mathmatical) arguments which help explain the first three minutes of the Universe. If you ever wanted to know what those physics professors do without having to take all their courses...this is the book for you! I recommend it highly

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wonderful. A source of ideas., 27. Juli 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The First Three Minutes: A Modern View Of The Origin Of The Universe (Taschenbuch)
A masterpiece. Weinberg was able to keep all the physics, with almost no mathematics. There is, in this book, a sense of drama seldom to be found in scientific books. You should start your cosmology studies here, independently of how far you intend to go.

Rezension bezieht sich auf: The First Three Minutes: A Modern View Of The Origin Of The Universe (Taschenbuch)
This is a great book that explains the origin of the universe even the layman can read it, but if you are more advanced there's a mathematical suplement in the back.

Rezension bezieht sich auf: The First Three Minutes: A Modern View Of The Origin Of The Universe (Taschenbuch)
The topics are fascinating. However the leverl at which this book was written, it seems that it was intened to descuss some rather serious astronomy with the layman. However, the book is not written either at a scientific leverl, nor a level that a layman could appreciate. It is caught somewhere in the middle where it is tedious to read through for someone who craves some math and physics, and equally difficult for someone who does not follow some of the major leaps in reasoning. Although the book begins by paraphrasing a lot of scientific detail, it reverts to mentioning some key terms and briefly explaining them, leaving a lot unsaid and sometimes ununderstood. From a scientific reader's view, this was the most successful attempt to write material that has the inherent quality of being difficult.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Good but Difficult, 4. Juni 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The First Three Minutes: A Modern View Of The Origin Of The Universe (Taschenbuch)
Steven Weinberg is one of the great physicists of the 20th century. "The First Three Minutes" is really written for the undergraduate physics major and is too difficult for most people. For non experts, there is a wonderful account of this early cosmology in "The Bible According to Einstein." It is about 50 pages long and is narrated in a wonderful language.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Difficult to understand if not knowledgeable on the subject., 22. August 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The First Three Minutes: A Modern View Of The Origin Of The Universe (Taschenbuch)
To appreciate this book you'd have to have a few college classes on cosmology. Because I haven't this book put me to sleep. There is a lot of terms and diagrams, and unless you have a previous understanding of elementary particles and astronomy I don't recommend it.
