Black Holes & Time Warps: Einstein's Outrageous Legacy
Kip S. Thorne
A deeply human and riveting account of how physics predicted and described one of the universe's deepest secrets.

But this book blew me away with its deep theoretical detail; human insight; and rich historical content. Thorne doesn't just want to tell you about the weird mindblowing theories of what black ...
