    An stimulating book

    An exciting read in the currently prevailing understanding of the universe, supported with good illustrations. Highly recommended to general readers and students.

    A very good book about aging science

    The Fabric of the Cosmos by Brian Greene expands the scope of his best selling Elegant Universe to even wider readership. The foundations of relativity and quantum theory were laid well before the appearance of spacecraft explorations, computers and the chaos theory. It is very unlikely that we can understand the texture of reality by adding extra dimensions to the old framework. For a much fresher look on the fabric of reality that elucidates puzzling observations, like normal galaxies and heavy elements at the fringes of the accessible universe, I recommend to pop-science and sci-fi readers Eugene Savov's book Theory of Interaction the Simplest Explanation of Everything. Savov simply demonstrates how the revealed vibrating underlying structure creates what we observe and then described in the laws of modern physics. If you will enjoy exploring some entertaining ideas that may become obsolete in few decades due to their complexity, then you should buy Brian Greene's The Fabric of the Cosmos. If you are looking for a simpler and much far reaching picture of the fabric of existence, inferred from space observations and trained in fractals intuition, then buy Eugene Savov's Theory of Interaction the Simplest Explanation of Everything together with Discovery of Cosmic Fractals by Yurij Baryshev and Pekka Teerikorpi. You may add these three books to your collection of basic books. The controversial books will free your mind.
