Sept brèves leçons de physique – Carlo Rovelli

Thoughts: I read Sept brèves leçons de physique as part of my effort to improve my French reading abilities. I found the book to be a bit dry at times, but somewhat more engaging than the similar-in-topic-and-scope Six Easy Pieces (of which, to be fair to Mr. Feynman, I had read much hype before picking up the book). I learned a few things about physics and got a little closer to fluency in French - overall, worthwhile.

(The notes below are not a summary of the book, but rather raw notes - whatever I thought, at the time, might be worth remembering.)
