Still one of my favorite stories of all time. A children's book that is still immensely applicable to adulthood. Fantastic.
I haven't read the book from here, but i have read it and i thought it was amazing. Its an excellent introduction and metaphor for theoretical physics of many dimensions, although it did raise a lot of questions for me. It is definitely a book that makes them think.
This book, to me, seems to represent the ongoing struggle between man and pest.
