This book seems to assume a good grasp of physics and quite frequently the opportunity to simplify the 'text' is passed up in favour of using the correct vocab rather than terms that are more readily understood by non-scientists. That said, I suspect 2nd and 3rd 'readings' would help with understanding the concepts.
Amazingly insightful, full of facts and ideas that will blow your mind.
Although the concepts may be advanced, the description and explanation are put simply enough for everybody to understand.
