Book Review – The Cosmic Machine: The Science That Runs Our Universe And The Story Behind It

Fraser Valley – “The Cosmic Machine: The Science That Runs Our Universe and the Story Behind It” by Scott Bembenek is chock full of incredible information, math and theory that makes for a powerful read.

With that said, if you are a fan of Bill Nye and Neil deGrasse Tyson, and you want to get into the nitty gritty of science and complicated theories, this is a fun challenge to read. If you think this is simply an extension of “The Big Bang Theory” TV series, then buyer beware.

Scott Bembenek‘s book is not what fans of TBBT or say Dr. Carin Bondar’s “Wild Sex” would provide, and that is plenty of chuckles.

The Cosmic Machine will stretch your brain.

The four main portions of the book are broken down into meaty subjects: Energy, Entropy, Atoms and Quantum Mechanics. This is not a weekend at the beach read, although if you are looking at some deep thinking, then give this a try.

I was never a big fan of math in school, let alone now in my late 50’s, so I am biased here. But if you are looking for pure science and the stories behind how our universe runs, then you have been challenged.

Remember the author is no dummy nor is he pretentious. Bembenek has a PhD in theoretical chemical physics, was a National Research Council Fellow, and currently works as a computational chemist doing drug discovery research. 

The book is available through Amazon, click here.
