Cast for two

Thursday, August 16, 2007

I go on holiday to the sea and I take with me:

books.

More particularly, I have high expectations from:
"De zee, Een fascinerende ontdekkingsreis door verleden, heden en toekomst van onze planeet" written by Frank Sch├Ątzing. The dutch version of the book "Nachrichten aus einem unbekannten Universum". I think reading this is a excellent preparation to the upcoming game Spore. The game is inspired on the movie "The power of ten". I saw that movie on the dutch television in "Zomergasten" in 2005. The guest was Robbert Dijkgraaf, one of the founding fathers of the string theory. Will Wright, the creator of The Sims, has created Spore partly inspired on the power of ten. Spore is an epic journey that takes you from the origin and evolution of life through the development of civilization and technology and eventually all the way into the deepest reaches of outer space.

The other books are:


Nice to see that all books come from the local library except the book from Penrose.

Fine list! I'm very curious about that Penrose book. Let me know if it's worth a read (although, I don't expect it to be easy stuff :-o).

@wallie Penrose books are definitely worth reading if you're interesting in the matter. But if you can read it , is another question. Ploughing might be a better description of the activity ;-)
