In this one book, Baker summarizes the history of, well, everything--from the beginning of the universe to the formation of the solar system, from the beginning of life all the way to the end of existence. This is a great read for fans of “Big History.” Want to know the intricacies of evolution? Or the different theories of how the universe will end? It's all here--combining different fields such as astronomy, biology, and history in an easily digestible read!
Rovelli does something I find truly astounding: he makes physics and philosophy engaging and enjoyable to read! Via multiple essays, he takes us through the complexities of the universe, Einstein’s mistakes, his own journey with psychedelics, atheism, and the future of physics. Beautifully written, witty, and charming, this book is great for everyone--those well versed in astronomy or complete novices to the field!
Set during the last year of the Great War, Arden's novel starts with a nurse learning that her brother has been declared dead. But multiple signs from beyond the grave indicate that her brother is still alive. To find the truth, she heads back to the war front where she discovers a story of murder, deceit, and the unimaginable strength of grief. Arden once more lends her gripping prose to telling a beautiful story; this is a fantastic read for those who like their historical fiction with a sprinkling of magic.
