Book Review: Just Six Numbers, by Martin Rees
Generally I enjoy Rees' writing, but this one didn't really get me as interested as I'd hoped. The numbers he's selected are often a bit obscure. I suppose this doesn't matter for a popular audience; for a reader with some training in physics, though, not all the numbers are obvious, and whilst they are reasonable choices and there is some insight into them, I'm reluctantly filing this one as disappointing.
