Anyone here read this?
I attempted it and after 40 pages I got ridiculously sick of reading what seemed like an endless fucking line of metaphors for sizes. I know how small 10^-43 is without the author having to go on a needlessly long tirade about what that is equivalent of.

I just wanna know if it stops doing this or if I should just give up on the book, because there's no way I can handle even 200 more pages of this.

Make your own decisions, manbaby

I'm asking if the book changes style; the only way I could make my own decision would be to read the whole thing. I don't want to do that if it's the same all the way through.

You must be new here.

Not really, sorry

There's a difference between *knowing* how small 10^-43 is and *understanding* how small 10^-43 is. Why get so mad at an author trying to contextualize something we don't encounter in our day-to-day lives?
