Let me state from the very beginning that the book “On The Shoulders of Giants” with commentary from Stephen Hawking is not, in any way or form, a book for everyone. It is not a book for beginners. As someone who came to read this book, after having read biographies on Einstein and DaVinci, the theories of Einstein, Newton, and Copernicus, I was nevertheless lost at least half the time, totally lost. Yet, even in the dark I had gained knowledge that just a short time ago I had no idea existed. It is at once mind boggling and awe inspiring that such men, with such supreme intellectual and without the tools available in today’s world, could achieve and conceive of such theories and discoveries is totally beyond me. This is a very, very big book and it will probably be a very long time before I pick it up again, but I am so very glad I did and have absolutely no regrets
