*********************** 20 STARRED Review *****************************
A genuine thought explosion!
Science writing at its finest!
[Gravity is acceleration - - you understand this and you understand everything from the atom to the universe writ large - - perhaps a slight exaggeration, but not by much.]
A small book filled with giant thoughts!
