My Grand Design for a book review

I got Stephen Hawking's The Grand Design today. For a book on theoretical physics, it looks to be a rather unintimidating read: It's not very fat, the font is reasonably large and generously spaced, and there are lots of pictures. Contrast that with, say, Lisa Randall's absolutely fascinating book Warped Passages, which despite its fascinating... uh... fascinating-ness, is approximately 40,000 pages of text that requires, at bare minimum, a monocle for accurate viewing.

Anyway, I will of course do a thorough discussion on the book. But before that, I'll do a quick vid that I'll stick on my dusty YouTube page to just give an overview of everything. Got it? Synchronize watches!
