About The Road to Reality (Roger Penrose)

Hi,
I've just started this book because I was interested by everything it was supposed to talk about. However I find quite confusing. I'm 16...
Is this too advanced or you think I can make through it with some effort.
What do you think about this book?
Oh! And by the way... do you know i f there's a place to find the solutions to the exercises? (since the official website is 'empty')

Hello yourself.

I commend you for tackling a book by one of the foremost authorities on General Relativistic Physics. I am not familiar with the specific book, but I would like to compliment you for reading it and encourage you to get as much as you can out of it.

I read a book a long time ago by three major authors in Relativity theory. It was called "Gravitation" and was by Thorne, Misner, and Wheeler if my memory is accurate. I got totally lost by their mathematics, but their conversational style allowed me to get some sense of most of the issues they were talking about. I realize that I only scratched the surface of the subject though. The book was a huge, heavy paperback book and I always joked to myself that it was very appropriate to the subject.

Good luck with your reading, and I hope you will get some meaningful understanding out of it. Perhaps someone with more relevant experience can give you more specific advice about what to look for in the book.
