I started reading Electric Universe by David Bodanis last night, just as I said I would. Even though I only got through the book’s Introduction (which was quite long for a typical introduction), I can already tell this is going to be one of those you have to force yourself to put down.
Not only was the writing easy to read and understand, but the author keeps you interested by slipping in little-known and sometimes random facts just when you least expect it. I haven’t even started what you’d call the actual content of the book yet, but already I’m hooked.
I plan to at least start the first chapter tonight, so stay tuned for more about the book in the coming days.
