    Please do post your thoughts on The Road to Reality. It looks interesting, of course, but I was wondering about the reading level for some of us less knowledgeable but inquisitive readers.

    I’ll do that. I would argue that books like TRtR should be read by incoming college students (I think you know my thoughts on how High School should be much more expectatious) so that they know what is out there. This is not easy reading, but the subject isn’t trivial either. Penrose doesn’t mind exploring the structure of complex and simple mathematical and physical concepts–so I would say that any reader with a decent understanding of fractions (and the concept of fractions) can get enough from his play to benefit.
