Good news everyone! I recently took a ride down to my local Barns & Nobel to pick up quite a few books.
I had read in my past a book called "The Gargoyle" by Andrew Davidson and needed my own copy. I probably spent about $150 on books. Among which I bought 4 of Stephen Hawking's books, including his new book "The Grand Design"
I am only about 24 page into it, but I must say that I am enjoying it thoroughly. You do need to know some prerequisites, such as string theory being revised to become M theory and such.
I'm going to keep this short and sweet, simply because I cannot keep my nose out of this book for very long.
