Just to follow up here in case the point isn't clear.  As anyone who  
has studied the books in question would attest, they are not a quick  
read!  Six Not-So-Easy Pieces in particular contains some fairly  
advanced mathematics (notably, you'll want to brush up on your vector  
calculus) and a lot of tough physics (for mere mortals like me,  
anyway); it demands a lot of thought, concentration, and reflection  
from the reader.  But both books offer great rewards; I would  
certainly follow John in recommending them and wish Paola the best in  
tackling them.    (02)
