Book Review : The Big Picture

“The Big Picture: On the Origins of Life, Meaning, and the Universe Itself” is written by Sean Carroll. I have been through an audio version of this book. I enjoyed the whole book. Its interesting because it deals with physics, cosmos, spirituality, human life, thinking. I understood Bayesian thinking in which one has some preconception about a fact, he tests the fact and then updates the understanding about the fact. Something what many may not like is the discussion in which the author supports on naturalism and almost may turn you into atheist.

Rating: 3/5. The discussion on lot of topics on physics and cosmology is good. The discussion on naturalism and thinking is stretched. At some point one could think that the author is only discussing of his interests and not connecting with reader.

  1. “At some point one could think that the author is only discussing of his interests and not connecting with reader.” I see a lot of authors do that.

    1. Yup, That is the point at which the reader gets mislead, into the personal domain of the author rather than into the flow of the book and its treatment about the subject.
