‘A BRIEFER HISTORY OF TIME’ by ERIC SCHULMAN (1999)
Type : Non-fiction, Comedy
Suitable for Age Group : All
Eric Schulman’s book is loosely parodied around Stephen Hawking’s ‘A Brief History of Time’ written 16 years earlier. The comedy is refreshing while the science is accurate, all the way from the moment of singularity to the rise of MacDonald’s in 120 pages. The rest 70 pages provides a humorous glossary of all terms mentioned in the book and beyond with some best left untouched – example : Half integer spin : Please don’t ask.
Humor often provides deeper insights than sombre facts, and this book illustrates vividly how ! Essential reading.
