Einstein's Monsters: The Life and Times of Black Holes

Einstein's Monsters: The Life and Times of Black Holes

Black holes are the most extreme objects in the universe, and yet they are ubiquitous. Every massive star leaves behind a black hole when it dies, and every galaxy harbors a supermassive black hole at its center. Frighteningly enigmatic, these dark giants continue to astound even the scientists who spend their careers studying them. Which came first, the galaxy or its cent Black holes are the most extreme objects in the universe, and yet they are ubiquitous. Every massive star leaves behind a...

    This is Black Hole 101. Most books about astronomy are very difficult to understand because they expect you to have a degree in physics. Not this one. I understand almost everything Impey is trying to say. So Einstein?s general relativity predicts black holes. We now have proof t...

    This book was wonderful. It's always great to read something where you can tell the author truly enjoys what they do. I have a very basic physics background, and knew pretty much nothing about cosmology, astronomical physics, or black holes for that matter, going into this. I was worri...

    Einstein?s Monsters focuses on the most awesome objects in the universe, black holes. Author Chris Impey dives deep into the history of our understanding of these fascinating celestial bodies. As we all know, a black hole is the final evolution of a star with a certain level of ma...

    This isn?t a book for science/space beginners like me. It will help if you have a general understanding of physics and science before you read this. The author does use good analogies, references poetry, and includes recaps that increase understanding. That said, a lot of this went o...

    Its rare to find a died in the wool science practicioner who can talk about their field in such an accessible and informative way, but that's Imprey for you. Fortunately, his field is the most interesting in all of physics, the study of black holes. Unlike so very many of the astro...

    Chris Impey is a very good, science writer. He takes incredibly complex subject matter and makes it understandable. I love non-fiction books that make me feel as though I've stepped through the looking glass. Impey's book does just that. After the last page was read, I can honestly say...

    Impey explores the most mysterious "monsters" predicted in Einstein's general relativity theory, giving experimental, observational, and theoretical details. Readers will be amazed, perhaps bewildered, and left wondering how the universe (or multiverses) came to be. ...

    I would highly recommend this book to those who are interested and patent enough to focus on quit complex subject matter. Extremely well written and wonderful illustrations. Mysterious and eye opening experience to read and digest. Lynnette ...

    It's more technical than other books of this type, but still it's well written. ...

    Interesting read on forces, gravitational and relativity theory, black holes, physicists, astronomy, advances in telecopy but portions of the book was a tough read for me. ...

    This is Black Hole 101. Most books about astronomy are very difficult to understand because they expect you to have a degree in physics. Not this one. I understand almost everything Impey is trying to say. So Einstein?s general relativity predicts black holes. We now have proof t...

    This book was wonderful. It's always great to read something where you can tell the author truly enjoys what they do. I have a very basic physics background, and knew pretty much nothing about cosmology, astronomical physics, or black holes for that matter, going into this. I was worri...

    Einstein?s Monsters focuses on the most awesome objects in the universe, black holes. Author Chris Impey dives deep into the history of our understanding of these fascinating celestial bodies. As we all know, a black hole is the final evolution of a star with a certain level of ma...

    This isn?t a book for science/space beginners like me. It will help if you have a general understanding of physics and science before you read this. The author does use good analogies, references poetry, and includes recaps that increase understanding. That said, a lot of this went o...

    Its rare to find a died in the wool science practicioner who can talk about their field in such an accessible and informative way, but that's Imprey for you. Fortunately, his field is the most interesting in all of physics, the study of black holes. Unlike so very many of the astro...

    Chris Impey is a very good, science writer. He takes incredibly complex subject matter and makes it understandable. I love non-fiction books that make me feel as though I've stepped through the looking glass. Impey's book does just that. After the last page was read, I can honestly say...

    Impey explores the most mysterious "monsters" predicted in Einstein's general relativity theory, giving experimental, observational, and theoretical details. Readers will be amazed, perhaps bewildered, and left wondering how the universe (or multiverses) came to be. ...

    I would highly recommend this book to those who are interested and patent enough to focus on quit complex subject matter. Extremely well written and wonderful illustrations. Mysterious and eye opening experience to read and digest. Lynnette ...

    It's more technical than other books of this type, but still it's well written. ...

    Interesting read on forces, gravitational and relativity theory, black holes, physicists, astronomy, advances in telecopy but portions of the book was a tough read for me. ...

    EINSTEIN?S MONSTERS. (2018). Chris Impey. ***. The author is a professor of astronomy at the University of Arizona , and is well versed in his subject. We find out soon that the monsters referred to are ?black holes?, a topic that Einstein worked on for many years. Black holes w...

    This is Black Hole 101. Most books about astronomy are very difficult to understand because they expect you to have a degree in physics. Not this one. I understand almost everything Impey is trying to say. So Einstein?s general relativity predicts black holes. We now have proof t...

    This book was wonderful. It's always great to read something where you can tell the author truly enjoys what they do. I have a very basic physics background, and knew pretty much nothing about cosmology, astronomical physics, or black holes for that matter, going into this. I was worri...

    Einstein?s Monsters focuses on the most awesome objects in the universe, black holes. Author Chris Impey dives deep into the history of our understanding of these fascinating celestial bodies. As we all know, a black hole is the final evolution of a star with a certain level of ma...

    This isn?t a book for science/space beginners like me. It will help if you have a general understanding of physics and science before you read this. The author does use good analogies, references poetry, and includes recaps that increase understanding. That said, a lot of this went o...

    Its rare to find a died in the wool science practicioner who can talk about their field in such an accessible and informative way, but that's Imprey for you. Fortunately, his field is the most interesting in all of physics, the study of black holes. Unlike so very many of the astro...

    Chris Impey is a very good, science writer. He takes incredibly complex subject matter and makes it understandable. I love non-fiction books that make me feel as though I've stepped through the looking glass. Impey's book does just that. After the last page was read, I can honestly say...

    Impey explores the most mysterious "monsters" predicted in Einstein's general relativity theory, giving experimental, observational, and theoretical details. Readers will be amazed, perhaps bewildered, and left wondering how the universe (or multiverses) came to be. ...

    I would highly recommend this book to those who are interested and patent enough to focus on quit complex subject matter. Extremely well written and wonderful illustrations. Mysterious and eye opening experience to read and digest. Lynnette ...

    It's more technical than other books of this type, but still it's well written. ...

    Interesting read on forces, gravitational and relativity theory, black holes, physicists, astronomy, advances in telecopy but portions of the book was a tough read for me. ...
