More from The Black Hole War

Reading Susskind’s book over lunch — yet another advantage of MGTOW — A Reader finds this passage very interesting:

[For] a mathematical result, the more technical, precise, unintuitive, and difficult it is, the more it shocks people into recognizing the value of a new way of thinking. — Susskind, Leonard (2008-07-07). The Black Hole War: My Battle with Stephen Hawking to Make the World Safe for Quantum Mechanics (p. 311). Hachette Book Group. Kindle Edition.

The book started out narrative but now there’s some serious science being explained; this might take longer to read than A Reader originally thought. There still no math, but a lot of concepts and a lot of counterintuitive ideas. (Physics sure has changed a lot since college.)
