Slashdot.org. I made my first posts minutes ago. I never had so much fun in my whole life!

I hafta agree with Mark Twain...I have no respect for someone who can only spell a word one way!

Is it good?

I started a 'A Brief History of Time' yesterday. I think is a dumbed down book. I can understand most of it. Im up to the bit about singularites (best part so far!)

It isn't dumbed down so much as it's written in layman's terms. Most of Hawking's other works don't do that.

Indeed it is.
I wouldn't say dumbed down, because most people haven't taken college level grammar and science.. Luckily I have taken several high level science and literature classes, thereofore Hawking's vocabulary is a bit easier to understand. I still have to sit and think really hard sometimes, and every now and then, I have to look a word up.

A Brief History of Time was a hard read for me. I understand the vocabulary, but some of the concepts are a bit too mind boggling.
