    A friend told me about me.. ok he bored me witless with sections of this book. I have now ended up buying it. I have to say its brilliant..

    The best thing imho about it is complex but it explains things in a way even idiots like myself can understand.. but it is also wildly complex and you feel your eaves dropping on scientists conversations.. Its not too bogged down with individual persons lives (unless it is intresting)... on persons total nervous breakdown is covered in two lines wich is impressive and funny .

    It is the best book i have ever read... reading a whodunit seems a waste of time now :rolleyes: ...well erm this probably is the best whodunit of recent times..
