Why is the sky dark at night? Is it possible to build a shrink-ray gun? If there is antimatter, can there be antipeople? No one but Dave Goldberg, the coolest nerd physicist on the planet, could give a hyper drive tour of the universe like this one. Not only does he answer the questions your stoner friends came up with in college, but he also reveals the most profound discoveries of physics with infectious, Carl Sagan–like enthusiasm and accessibility.
Isabel Allende's The Japanese Lover is a beautiful story within a story, following the life of a woman living at a senior care center and the young woman who befriends her. In her usual historical mastery, Allende spans the life and stories of WWII, Japanese internment camps, and forbidden love. A fantastic read for Allende fans of all ages.
