I've been watching a bunch of Lawrence Krauss videos, kicked off by his appearance on the Rogan podcast, and this is his most current book.
It's taking me through the concepts in physics that underlie the contemporary view of how things work.
I took some physics in high school (it was 20 years ago! WHAT!!!?) so some of the stuff sounds sort of famiiiiiliar, but really trying to just understand the concepts--even devoid of the math--is really hard for me.
Seriously...the double slit experiment...fuck right off. (and I know it gets weirder from there)
