In this work Einstein intended, as far as possible, to give an exact insight into the theory of relativity to those readers who, from a general and scientific philosophical point of view, are interested in the theory, but who are not conversant with the mathematical apparatus of theoretical physics. The theory of relativity enriched physics and astronomy during the 20th century.(Relativity: The Special and the General Theory by Albert Einstein, 9789380914220)
Which of these bizarre phenomena, if any, can really exist in our universe? Black holes, down which anything can fall but from which nothing can return; wormholes, short spacewarps connecting regions of the cosmos; singularities, where space and time are so violently warped that time ceases to exist and space becomes a kind of foam; gravitational waves, which carry symphonic accounts of collisions of black holes billions of years ago; and time machines, for traveling backward and forward in time.
Kip Thorne, along with fellow theorists Stephen Hawking and Roger Penrose, a cadre of Russians, and earlier scientists such as Oppenheimer, Wheeler and Chandrasekhar, has been in the thick of the quest to secure answers. In this masterfully written and brilliantly informed work of scientific history and explanation, Dr. Thorne, a Nobel Prize-winning physicist and the Feynman Professor of Theoretical Physics Emeritus at Caltech, leads his readers through an elegant, always human, tapestry of interlocking themes, coming finally to a uniquely informed answer to the great question: what principles control our universe and why do physicists think they know the things they think they know? Stephen Hawking's A Brief History of Time has been one of the greatest best-sellers in publishing history. Anyone who struggled with that book will find here a more slowly paced but equally mind-stretching experience, with the added fascination of a rich historical and human component.
Winner of the Phi Beta Kappa Award in Science.
The authors outline how their positions have further diverged on a number of key issues, including the spatial geometry of the universe, inflationary versus cyclic theories of the cosmos, and the black-hole information-loss paradox. Though much progress has been made, Hawking and Penrose stress that physicists still have further to go in their quest for a quantum theory of gravity.
This is essential reading for anyone interested in Abraham Lincoln, the Civil War, or American political history.
Praise for Abraham Lincoln:
"Lord Charnwood has given us the most complete interpretation of Lincoln as yet produced, and he has presented it in such artistic form that it may well become a classic".
—American Historical Review
"This book is bound to take first rank in the literature of Lincoln, and in many respects it may be pronounced the best of the biographies".
"Lord Charnwood’s remains the best Lincoln biography".
—The Weekly Standard

But love is long...
Love…an emotion for some, word of GOD for others. Some feel love is patient, while others believe it does not delight in evil but rejoices with truth… always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always preserves.
But for Rishi Sinha, it has a completely different definition. For him, love is time pass. Hanging out with random girls, flirting with them and changing his girlfriend every week is his way of life.
Everything is fine in its own crooked way, until he encounters Ananya Tripathi… a devastatingly beautiful yet breathtakingly cute girl, whose charming eyes could brighten the dead night sky.
What happens next? Will Ananya be able to fall for a flirt like Rishi? What's gonna happen when opposites collide? A chemical reaction... BOOM!... Beware it will numb all your senses.
Love happens only once… rest is just life.
