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...

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

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...

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...

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...

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. ...

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. ...
