This book explains with outstanding clarity very complex terms like what time is, what black holes and wormholes are, different possibilities for the shape of the universe and so much more. Mr. Al-Khalili refrains from using mathematical explanations and, using humor and focused arguments, illustrates briefly what is a wonderful introduction of the subject to general readers (highly recommended for teens). It practically changed my view upon the world.

The best way to get introduce to the history and time details of the General Theory of Relativity and some of its possible consequences. An excellent treatment of the theme. Very precise, very modernized, probably do not miss any edge accepted theory about the title. And, one of the best things, you do not need to be a noble prize to understand the book. Congratulations to the author
