You may miss the comment posted today to my December 26, 2004 blog entry "Tragic," in which I quoted Eric Schulman's "The History of the Universe in Approximately 200 Words" to distract myself from the tragedy of the tsunami in Asia. That being the case, here is a copy of this morning's comment, presumably by Mr. Schulman:
Thanks for posting my History of the Universe. You might also enjoy the book I wrote based on the piece, A Briefer History of Time.
I downloaded the book, and it's great and entertaining and very interesting, and perhaps best of all, it's free. I encourage you to do the same.
