I had a difficult time deciding where to put this. I think after awhile we’ll have to start a thread in Great Debates, but for now it’s just informational.
Got a solicitation online for a book, The Final Theory. It directed me to a website, Here, where the book was described and where a free copy of the first chapter was offered.
Evidently the book has been around for a couple of years, but several different types of searches of the archives turned up no SDMB hits.
I downloaded the free chapter and skimmed about half of it, but frankly this kinda stuff is way over my head. Lots of it seems logical, but I took only Physics 101 in college, so I don’t know.
Anyway, has anyone read the book? If so, what’s the story?
Even viewing the site and reading the first chapter… does this seem valid or is this the work of a nutjob? And if so, why?
The logic seems good, what little I’ve read, but re-writing the theory of gravity?
It seems like a natural somewhere in The Straight Dope!
