From the world-renowned physicist and bestselling author of The Elegant Universe and The Fabric of the Cosmos, a captivating exploration of deep time and humanity's search for purpose

In both time and space, the cosmos is astoundingly vast, and yet is governed by simple, elegant, universal mathematical laws.

On this cosmic timeline, our human era is spectacular but fleeting. Someday, we know, we will all die. And, we know, so too will the universe itself.

Until the End of Time is Brian Greene's breathtaking new exploration of the cosmos and our quest to understand it. Greene takes us on a journey across time, from our most refined understanding of the universe's beginning, to the closest science can take us to the very end.

Meh. So meh I might even downgrade to two stars (edit: I did). I mean there are some interesting things explained, but I don’t feel like Greene got anywhere close to the grand theory of physics and art he clearly wants to find. He’s just not an art guy, and that’s all I get from his attempts to explore it. There are many other books I would recommend reading about the topics he touches on, except maybe the physics. Greene knows how to explain physics. He doesn’t know how to explain the other disciplines explored here. So for now I would say, skip this book, read his other books, and read the books of the people he cites, who do a better job of explaining the ideas in their own areas of expertise.
