Summary
Gravity rules the universe. Without it, everything would dissolve into a gas of randomly interacting atoms. Yet gravity is one of the least understood forces in nature. Black Holes, Tides, and Curved Spacetime introduces you to key ideas in gravity research over the past 400 years. It's an awe-inspiring journey led by a prominent theoretical physicist
