Strange Matters: Undiscovered Ideas at the Frontiers of Time and Space by Tom Siegfried
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Strange Matters by Tom Siegfried was a great read. I only have a basic understanding of theoretical physics, so some of it was over my head. But Siegfried did a good job of making it as understandable as possible. And his analogies and wit made it fun.
This non-fiction book outlines what is currently known about physics and cosmology, then dives into what is theorized. And what is theorized is truly bizarre. This exploratory journey takes us into the elusive dark matter and dark energy, superstrings, multiple dimensions, the geometry of space, and so much more.
Whether you’re looking to learn more about theoretical physics or are interested in igniting your sci-fi writing creativity (like me), then Strange Matters is an inspiring read.
