A story about "A Brief History of Time : From the Big Bang to Black Holes"

by Stephen W. Hawking

First book on Physics ever since I finished college. A good book to get your cogs in conditions again :)

Well written and easy on the beginners (to Physics). Particularly enjoyed the part about the Negative Time Axis. Also got to know about ‘The Chandrashekar Limit’

You're still using Allconsuming? I thought you had moved on to Chainreading?

I read this book on a train journey from Madurai to Coimbatore. Helped me pass the time. Learned a few new terms too...

@Jax : Am sticking to Allconsuming in the hope that they will come up with the new features in the near future.

I dont find chainreading so appealing.

I've stopped using Allconsuming from this year(2006) onwards. Moved to Chainreading completely.

BTW, what features did you find so appealing in AC that is not in CR, maybe you can let the developer of CR know, so that services are improved.

Menawhile, I've changed the layout of my bookshelf, have a look and let me know...
