This is a great read for people interested in science, particularly what has happened in the century since Einstein's theory of relativity was presented. It details the interesting, sometime odd, passionate and brilliant people who have worked to measure gravitational waves and, therefore, prove that black holes exist as theorized. Sounds much more dry that it is - Levin does a good job bringing the quest to life and explaining just enough science to make it interesting but not overwhelming to a layperson. The decades of hard work and experimentation that have gone into this effort are amazing and the scientists are characters. Good read! ~ Reviewed by Chris Morrow
