What I'm reading...

I saw Charlie Rose interview Lisa Randall and I immediately wanted to read her books. She has a speaking style that's very interesting; she is able to convey the excitement she sees in particle physics in layman's language -- no small trick, that -- and she is almost bursting with the information she has to pare down. The containment and delivery of bite size bits of info, minus the math which is the road itself, is an art form.
