The Fabric of the Cosmos - Space, Time, and the Texture of Reality

This is simply another great book on the cosmos by Brian Greene. I previously read Greene's book "The Elegant Universe" and I think at enjoyed this one even more. Greene packs as enormous wealth of information in his books. Quite frankly, it takes me considerably longer to read one of his books than most other books I read because of the volume of new information I am learning.

Greene has done a fantastic job of explaining the cosmos in this work. His explanations are detailed and lengthy enough to thoroughly convey the concepts discussed. There were many concepts that I read about in other books which were clearly delineated in this book, and I went away with a much better understanding.

Green covers a wealth of information about the cosmos such as wave probability, uncertainty, spin, entanglement, the flow and direction of time, quantum erasure, decoherence, symmetry, the various forces of nature (strong, weak, electromagnetic, gravity), Higgs field, the big bang, inflation, dark matter, dark energy, entropy, string theory, branes, time travel, the future, and much more.

If you want to get a good education about the universe we live in, I high recommend Green's books.
