An excellent lively written account
am 6. August 2000
If I were to have a kid and if this kid were to reach its tenths age, I would surely give it Kip Thorne's excellent book to read and admire. It is an excellent account of the evolution of black hole and gravitational physics, written in a very interesting and clear way. The results are presented and explained in a science fiction spirit first, then comes the superb heuristic explanation of phenomena accompanied by a deep insight into the history of their discovery and the main characters behind it. The author's vivid way of explaining things can also be admired in the bible of gravitation theory called "Gravitation".
