From the book description:
"At the same time, the book shows why these equations have something timeless to say about the universe, and how they do it with an economy (zero words) that no other form of human expression can match."
If the equations authentically represent the economy of zero words, we shouldn't need anything but those equations. In fact, though, the explanation by words is vital and the equations, themselves, are always codified sentences. F=ma doesn't mean anything until you understand it to be the sentence, "Force equals mass times acceleration".
