    1. Martin John Rees, Baron Rees of Ludlow, OM, PRS born June 23, 1942 in York is an English cosmologist and astrophysicist He has been Astronomer Royal since 1995, and Master of Trinity College, Cambridge since 2004 He became President of the Royal Society on December 1, 2005.

    2. [Original review, November 2008]This book blew me away I hadn't been paying attention, and had missed a scientific revolution that had happened right under my nose! To cut to the chase: either someone created the Universe expressly to make it suitable for living beings, or there are lots of universes, and we just happen to be in one of the rare ones that support life. Right now, there don't seem to be many other serious alternatives. If you have trouble believing this, get Rees's excellent book. [...]

    3. کتاب فیزیکی خوندنی ای برای عموم. نگاهی کلی به شش عنصر اصلی که این جهان رو محل مناسبی برای زیستن میکنه، میندازه. خواندنش ساده س و مقدار استفاده ش از فیزیک تقریبا کمه که باعث شده این کتاب برای عموم مناسب باشه و دید کلی ای راجع به این موضوع بهشون بده. حجمش کمه و خیلی سریع هم به پایان [...]

    4. Rees is an interesting man - I went to a lecture by him years ago where he explained his theory of the six numbers. Essentially he says that if you were to change a few numbers - the force of gravity, say, or the electric charge - the universe would be completely different. It is interesting that the universe seems to be pretty nicely set up for life to evolve and even little changes in these fundamental numbers would make life as we know it impossible.I always have problems with this sort of ar [...]

    5. Cosmology 101[Strictly for Cosmology amateurs]Syllabus as follows: - Read Rees' book thoroughly. - Write an essay in appreciation that elucidates the crucial importance of physical constants. - Submit three reports on the current state of understanding and how they have evolved in any of the major constants touched upon in the book - Bonus assignment: Search out one popular science book that has managed to cover in 100s of pages what Rees covers with lucidity in a few scores. - Extra Bonus Assig [...]

    6. After we've had a few drinks my fundamentalist friends will often bring the talk round to The Creation just to have some fun at my expense.They laugh at my belief in a "big bang", make ribald jokes about my "sudden, enormous inflation" and tell me I don't have much energy at all these days let alone any "dark energy". I've only myself to blame for not keeping up with the latest in cosmology. I tend to end up mumbling something about micro-wave background radiation before heading off quickly to t [...]

    7. This four-star rating is actually a compromise between the intrinsic value and merits of this book (5 star) and how much I personally enjoyed reading it (3 star).This is a cute, very readable and superbly well written introductory book at beginners level. A fine example of popular science book, encapsulating several interesting concepts in just a little over 170 pages, with little oversimplification. Had I come across this book 15 years ago, I would have appreciated it immensely more. Reading it [...]

    8. كتاب مذهل وممتع جداً يأخذك في رحلة شيقة في ماضي وحاضر ومستقبل هذا الكون، لا تقرأ هذا الكتاب إذا لم تكن مستعداً ذهنياً لفهم قوانين الرياضيات والفيزياء وإعادة قراءة الجملة عشر مرات حتى تفهم معنى كلام المؤلف. ستموت شمسنا في غضون ٥ مليارات سنه ومعها الأرض، وستتجه نحو مجرة "أندرو [...]

    9. I don't hold much respect for "fine-tuning" arguments in relation to cosmology, but the book was a gift, so I felt obligated to give it a try. Also, if one wants to be knowledgeable about this kind of thing, one has to read more than just the stuff that supports one's own ideas.In his attempt to be accessible to the public, the author does what I consider to be a lot of hand-waving and emphatic gestures rather than actually explaining anything. He also fails at what I think is a basic level of i [...]

    10. Just six numbers, written and narrated by the author (k drive)1999non-fictionscience (multiple universe theory, super strings)fraudioMartin Rees has been Astronomer Royal since 1995.You can't get away from the black and white of the situation, manouvered or evolved. You will find that there is no point in discussing this with anyone. Everyone believes, in the depths of their very being, one way or the othereaked or not tweaked You could not hope to convert by discussion so why bother trying. I a [...]

    11. 3.5 stars. I appreciate it for familiarizing me with these 6 important numbers. However, the reason for the loss of 1.5 stars was due to the book's seeming lack of inspiration. There doesn't seem to be any excitement throughout. Very bland at times for such an interesting topic.

    12. Martin Rees is the Astronomer Royal of Great Britain (since 1995) and is a skilled writer on matters astronomical for the general public. In this book he describes six numerical constants that lie at the heart of knowledge about the universe at the turn of the millennium (the book was published in 1999). His subjects range from fundamental particle forces to the mysterious "dark energy" as represented by lambda, the force believed responsible for the accelerating expansion of the universe. At on [...]

    13. Six numbers: if any was altered in a very small degree, the universe would not have permitted life to develop.For example, if gravity wasn't exactly this weak comparing to other forces in the atom, but not weaker, the universe either would have collapsed right after Big Bang, or would have expanded so fast that no stars, galaxies, planetary systems could've formed.Thus, no potential for life.Writing and readabilityRees makes his case of fine tuning with regard to life very convincing. The book i [...]

    14. This book might be short, but it is full of information that are presented in an easy-to-understand style. Unlike many of popular science books, this one is to the point and there are very few diversions. The main thesis is one of the greatest discoveries in physics that was made in the 1970s and 1980s; it tells us that there are these six numbers, which are extremely fine-tuned and what would happen if any of them is only slightly modified.What makes this book more interesting is the fact that [...]

    15. A terse survey of cosmology. Covers a wide breadth without going into satisfactory depth.For example, the author sometimes mentions only one of several interesting points of view.Still, a fine read, especially valuable to the novice, but not boring to the expert.Embarrassingly, the author predicts the discovery of dark matter particles by 2005.:P

    16. A very good summary of pretty much everything about what happened after the Big Bang. I recommend reading this along with Neil deGrasse Tyson's Origins.

    17. This is a little out of date now, and some of the predictions are almost adorably wrong at this point — that we would understand dark matter and dark energy, and that we’d have a unified Theory of Everything explaining how all the forces we know of are tied together. But this book is still useful in explaining, in clear and simple terms, why exactly people say the universe has been “fine-tuned”. It’s not the most in-depth treatment out there, but I think it’d be very good for getting [...]

    18. As its title suggests, this 1999 book by Martin Rees, the UK's Astronomer Royal, addresses six numbers that determine whether a universe can support life as we know it. The first number Rees calls N, which is the ratio of the gravitational force to the electromagnetic force and is about 10^36. He explains how, if this ratio were less, and therefore gravity was relatively stronger, stars would be much smaller and would burn much quicker. There would not be sufficient time for life to evolve.The s [...]

    19. If any of six numbers were slightly altered, the universe as we know it – including ourselves – would not exist. Small changes to any one of six numbers – the strength of electrical forces, the amount of matter in the universe, antigravity, etc – and everything would be different. So how did the universe become so finely tuned to support our existence and the existence of the stars? Was it Providence? A cosmic coincidence? Neither, says Martin Rees. He postulates that our universe is one [...]

    20. I gobbled this one up in a heartbeat. Brilliant, wonderful, insightful. I loved it. I plan on reading it again before taking it back to the library. Maybe I will get a copy for the house too. I don't have anything to add to what the author said. Bravo and thank you for letting the reader make his own conclusion or choose not to make any at that point. I was worried there for a bit that he was going to pounce an agenda on me. Nope. It looks like the author is just genuinely interested in as he ca [...]

    21. Subtitled The Deep Forces that Shape the Universe, this pop science book, written by the astronomer royal, discusses six cosmological constants that define the size, shape and structure of the universe.An interesting book, but one that didn't really teach me that much that I didn't already know. The most interesting thing was the stress on how if any of these numbers were very slightly different, they would have resulted in a universe that would be unsuitable for life. Rees deliberately avoids t [...]

    22. Meh. That about sums up my feelings on this book.When I finally got my hands on this book I was so excited. I expected to be blown away by the 6 numbers and the perfection to which they were tuned to allow life to emerge in our universe. Instead I was bored at times, and definitely not blown away. There is a show on the History channel called 'The Universe', which at times is over the top, but in this case they have done a better job of getting the point across then Rees has. This book is basica [...]

    23. Rees explains the miracle of six universal parameters (the force of gravity, the strength of atomic nuclei bound, the strength of cosmic antigravity, etc.) being set just at the right level so that our universe could form and life could emerge therein. If we wanted to start to tinker with any of these parameters, we would quickly arrive at an alternative universe which, unlike ours, does not have the required chemistry, cannot support formation of galaxies, stars and planets - in short, could no [...]

    24. In _Just Six Numbers_, Martin Rees examines six numbers describing our universe, six numbers that are unique in that they cannot be derived from any theory. He uses those numbers to show both that our universe seems to be "finely-tuned" for diversity and life, and that we can use the fine-tuning aspect to think about why or how the universe as we know it began and is situated in the whole of reality.I vascillated between 3 and 4 stars for this book. It is a fantastic look into some of the forces [...]

    25. این کتاب یکی از نمونه های موفق در زمینه ی ترویج علم* است که به قلم یک دانشمند برجسته نوشته شده و از این لحاظ ترجمه اش می توانست مایه ی خوشنودی و راه گشا باشد.ولی ترجمه ی کتاب این امید را به باد می دهد.مترجم در موارد متعددی عقاید ایدئولوژیک اش را در قالب پاورقی به خواننده ی این کتا [...]

    26. This is a very readable, but still fairly complicated look at our universe and the six different factors that allow it to be a hospitable place in which we may live. I enjoyed reading the book, but I must admit that much of the science went waaaaay over my head. In fact, I was very glad that the book was so short or else I might've been too intimidated to read it. interesting quotes: "If one had to summarize, in just one sentence, 'What's been happening since the Big Bang?', the best answer migh [...]

    27. The book centres around six crucial numbers, without which our universe would not exist.I found this book intriguing and it really made me aware of how extraordinary out planet is; the author reiterated the importance of these six vital numbers by pointing out that if the numbers were slightly higher or lower than their current value, then the universe as we know it would be completely different. It emphasised how special life is and how wonderful the universe is with all its diversity. Rees exp [...]

    28. This seemed like a cool book, given my lay person's love of astronomy, high-energy physics and cosmology. I think a combination of the author and the reader (me) led me to give this book only an "ok" rating. Rees writes in an easy open style, but occasionally throws in some big words or theories, but doesn't go into explaining them in the depth I'd like to see. Perhaps that's because it would exceed the intended mass audience of his book. But, to be fair, if he went into massive detail, I'd be b [...]

    29. I've only read half of it but I have the basic concepts and will probably not finish it. The "numbers" themselves are not that crucial (despite the title) - the main concept is that our universe is shaped by a particular balance between forces- such as the force that holds subatomic particles apart versus the force of gravity. In that a case, a different ratio than the one we experience would result in longer or shorter lives of stars and therefore longer or shorter evolutionary opportunities on [...]
