I'm currently reading Leonard Susskind's The Cosmic Landscape
and I am in love with this man's way to expose and explain concepts of varying difficulty to a larger, intelligent public. It's theoretical physics and a superb read. If you have a passion for science, I recommend this book anytime!
I actually wanted to ask you guys, what kind of books do you like to read during the winter in particular? Any favorites?
I used to love reading detective/crime/mystery books when it was dark and snowy outside, though the last time I got to do that was years ago... Weren't the most peaceful winters, the last two I had... Unfortunately.
This is different this winter, though, I fixed a lot of (mostly personal life-related) things through this year aaaand I think the read for this winter shall be Umberto Eco's The Name of the Rose
and Joseph Heller's Catch-22
, one very philosophical, from a hermeneutic/semiological/maybe even logical perspective from what I heard, and magnificently written, and the other was mentioned in The Cosmic Landscape
as an example of a tremendous (logical) paradox, which intrigues me infinitely as of now >:'D
