It Thinking Cannot Compare With StudyingIt WasThinking cannot compare with studyingIt was depressing to me how Profiles Of Women Murdered By The Boston Strangler incredibly political academias I knew this of course but as someone who has spent all her life Meditations For A New Day in corporate America with a brief stintn non profit land Schlock Webzine Vol 2 Issue 27 it was depressing to see how academia can put all of the greed and political shenanigans to shame All that bickering and blocking each other s paths What a waste ofncredible mental talent I know there s a lot of cooperation too which 60 Minute Scrum is also clearn the bookThis was a really enjoyable read for me despite or maybe because of being very different than my usual fare gratitudes to netgalley and the publisher for an early copy Positively 4th Street in exchange for an honest review If you rento stuff like this you can read the full reviewCalabi Yau Spaces 2 The Shape of a Life One Mathematician s Search for the Universe s Hidden Geometry by Shing Tung Yau Steve NadisI wear a giant panda suit outside a Panda Burger giving out promotional leaflets As this job Beauty And Innocence is a bit easy and I can dot without too much conscious effort the only thing I have to watch out for Galleons And Sunken Treasure is farting ast The Cricket That Roared is unpleasant trappedn that panda suit anyhow I digress this gives me a LOT of time to think about serious The Awakening issues such as time and the merits of thinking about Physicsn a Panda suit Writing For I Love Lucy And Other Funny Stuff in scorching hot Lisbonn the Summer I thought this was a great book I was a bit concerned at the beginning that Teasing The Devil it was going to be a book hyping string theory but the books much than that It covers the whole life of this mathematician and I find his story to be fascinating It gives a wonderful look One Monk Many Masters into how mathematics has shaped his life I recommend the book to anyone who enjoys the history of mathematics I spent a whole day without eating and the whole night without sleepingn order to think but The Rose King it was of no use I got nothing out oft Thinking cannot compare with studying ConfuciusShing Tung Yau along with Steve Nadis take us on a journey of a life Narrative Of Richard Lee Mason In The Pioneer West 1819 in the pursuit of the universes hidden geometry Their journey goes from China to Hong Kong and leads to San Francisco and Berkeley Who knew looking for a topic for your dissertation at Berkeley would lead to a life long studyn geometry I found his realizations profound how Shing Tung Yau made his decisions This Love Sex Blood is a wonderful read for not just mathematiciant goes beyond that Narendra Modi it goes to the euation within all of us and the search we are all on to solve the Shape of Life This wonderfully written book for a mathematicians a dream with the euations and answers with steps ncluded allows others to understand the complex thinking of Shing Tung Yau and Steve Nadis and why they found their conclusions are both profound and completely uniue not that no one has not thought of them before but the way they found the conclusions was what made them so profound The deeper "meaning beyond the math makes this by far one of my most favorite books of all time "beyond the math makes this by far one of my most favorite books of all time earlier work by this brilliant mathematician The Shape of Inner Space remains my favorite volume on the mathematics undergirding much of string theory uite simply the achievements of Shing Tung Yau are ncredible Harvard Professor National Medal of Sciences and the Fields Medal to name a few Knowing him mainly from his contributions to the world of physics as the Yau Uk Post Punk in the Calabi Yau manifold and the Yn the SYZ conjecture Crowns Of Fire it was particularly enjoyable to have a volume detailing his backgroundn pure mathematicsThis volume It Services Business Management is his memoir and along the way provide.
