I am an avid reader of Physics. Each book adds another element to my understanding of how the universe works. This is one of the best books, as it explains the theories in a clear language, without all the math concepts. I never studied math in particular, so this book was better for me to understand. If you have never picked up a book about physics before, this would be one to start with. It keeps your interest, and gives a lot of food for thought. Lisa Randall, knows her material, and can expain it better than most of the authors I have read. For example, Steven Hawkins is a very HARD read. I had trouble with his explainations of theory. This book "Warped Passages" is worth the time to read slowly and carefully. Your understanding of Quantom Mechancis, and the The Therory of Relativity, had clearer meaning.

    Not bad...not good.

    As a physics student i've been reading many novels on theoretical physics. Parallel World, The Fabric of the Cosmos, Elegant Universe...etc. I thought this novel would provide some new insight into the field of modern physics. However the analogies and metaphors are very oontrived, and not well applied. Also the book is scattered in that sometimes its assumes no previous knowledge and sometimes it does. Overall I would not recomment this book becuase it is very confusing and not well-written.
