Not enough Simpsons in it.

Written after Manny's here http://www.goodreads.com/review/show/164107224, because somebody has to stand tall and write the tough reviews.

It was a good update for what I've missed in the last decade, and it even makes me rather curious about some of the math. I've got a real curiosity about holographic universes now that I've got a better image of them. I love the idea of a highly encoded piece of information undergoing a transform that then gets plastered upon the ceiling of the universe. Touching upon branes and seeing how they might possibly touch each other was also pretty cool. The writing in this book was quite good and nothing seemed out of place, not even the heavy speculation near the end. In fact, I really enjoyed that, too. ( )

Probably a 4-star book, but I confirmed that I'm just not interested in alternative-universe theories/studies/realities. ( )

Probably one of the most comprehensive and comprehensible books on basically everything I have read. From classic physics to Einstein and string theory to reality are explained. This is definitely not a book for non-science people. Greene does, frequently, give the reader a chance to jump ahead if they do not want to read about the explanation of the theory presented. Greene will give a summary and then go into the science the reader has the choice of listening tot he details or accepting the theory and moving to the next step. As the science gets weirder from Einstein to quantum physics, the explanations become more detailed. Multiple universes, a touch of the hologram theory, white holes, and inflationary multiverses are enough to boggle the average educated mind.

I am probably doing this book a disservice by reviewing it. The problem is, I listened to the audiobook version of The Hidden Reality.

It's not that the author, Brian Greene, who reads the book himself, is a bad narrator. Quite the contrary, I think the guy could do this for a living if he wasn't a theoretical physicist. It's just that it is easy for a mind to wander momentarily when listening and then you miss things. Normally not a problem, but when you're listening to an explanation of string theory or general relativity or the brain-slice multiverse theory, then you may quickly miss the point and have difficulty following the subsequent explanations. And unlike with a book, you cannot just quickly rescan what you've missed, you have to rewind.

Anyway, The Hidden Reality is all about how our universe may be just one of the perhaps infinitely many universes in a multiverse. Various possible multiverse theories are explored. There is the inflationary theory, the bubble one, the holographic one, my favorite the simulated multiverse theory and even the ultimate one.

The science supporting each such theory is explained, whether be it Newtonian physics, Einstein's relativity, quantum fields or, of course and possibly most prominently, string theory. Quite often Greene resorts to colorful metaphors, such as using Cartman from South Park rolling down the mountain to explain inflationary cosmology, but I wonder if that actually does more harm than good, since it obscures and possibly trivializes the subject. I mean, I didn't quite get it - not that it means anything.

Fascinating subjects are broached here, but as I said, one might get more out of it by reading rather than listening to this book, which I once already abandoned listening to due to the problems described above. I am going to try to atone by actually reading one of Greene's previous books on the subject of string theory. ( )
