Description

THE PHENOMENAL BESTSELLER FROM THE AUTHOR OF WHITE HOLES

One of the Best Books of the 21st Century according to The Guardian


‘The perfect antidote to the fluff and nonsense around right now. Learn how the world is and how you might just fit in’ Simon Mayo

These seven short lessons guide us, with simplicity and clarity, through the scientific revolution that shook physics in the twentieth century and still continues to shake us today. In this mind-bending overview of modern physics, Carlo Rovelli explains Einstein’s theory of general relativity, quantum mechanics, black holes, the complex architecture of the universe, elementary particles, gravity, and the nature of the mind.

Not since Richard Feynman’s celebrated Six Easy Pieces has physics been so vividly, intelligently and entertainingly revealed.

Translated by Simon Carnell and Erica Segre
