Book Review #10
Don't Know Much About Space by Kenneth C. Davis
Rating: one star (out of four)
I thought it was funny how Kenneth is writing about all the things that we used to believe about space and he jokes how stupid we were. Then he goes on to explain what we now know is true and I'm thinking, "ha, yeah right!" Because - who knows - in 200 years people are going to be laughing at us for what we believed now. This book was also incredibly hard to get through, I almost fell asleep a couple times. While most of his books are humorous educational reads, I didn't care for this one a bit, I don't think that we can go around claiming we know how things work now because we are so much smarter then a couple hundred years ago. Don't bother reading this book.
