Wish there was more.
This Collection is Amazing
I feel unbelievable fortunate to have stumbled upon this collection. As an avid reader and follower of many physics topics, I have always wished that I could go back to school to learn more. In my readings, I started with Stephen Hawkins, then Brian Greene, and then moved on to other great minds who have also helped to transition science into the mainstream. However, these understandably often fail in providing the mathematical depth that is the basis for this science. And so, even though I bask in the wonder of the theoretical and the wonderfully informative books that are out there, I am thrilled at having the opportunity to attend a pseudo cyber lecture at one of these prestigious institutions. I am grateful for the opportunity and fully intend to take advantage of it.
