Product description

Book Description

The number 1 bestseller from the superstar physicist hailed as 'the new Hawking' (Sunday Times) --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Review

Extraordinary. . . you should read it -- Nick Hornby, Believer

Modern physics has found its poet. A captivating, fascinating, profoundly beautiful book. . . Rovelli is a wonderfully humane, gentle and witty guide for he is as much philosopher and poet as he is a scientist -- John Banville, Irish Times

A dizzying, poetic work in which I found myself abandoning everything I thought I knew about time -- Charlotte Higgins, Guardian

Wonderful. . . Time is something we think we know about instinctively; here he shows how profoundly strange it really is -- Philip Pullman, Guardian

Meet the new Stephen Hawking. . . I've never seen special relativity explained so well, never visualised it less fuzzily, never felt such a jolt of shock at what it implies -- James McConnachie, Sunday Times

I consider Carlo Rovelli to be a poet as much as a physicist. . . Everybody should read this book -- Es Devlin

A joy to read. . . Rovelli writes easily, vividly and brilliantly - he is as at ease with Beethoven as he is with Boltzmann's constant, and verses by Horace launch each chapter, one of which ends with a couplet from the Grateful Dead. . . A delight -- Tim Radford, Guardian

A deep - and remarkably readable - dive into the fundamental nature of time. . . written with enough charm and poetry to engage the imagination of anyone who reads it -- Clive Cookson, Financial Times

Highly original. . . The heart and humanity of the book, its poetry and its gentle tone raise it to the level and style of such great scientist-writers as Lewis Thomas and Rachel Carson -- Alan Lightman, New York Times Book Review

Rovelli is one of our great scientific explicators. . . Not since Stephen Hawking's A Brief History of Time has there been so genial an integration of physics and philosophy -- Ian Thomson, Observer --This text refers to the paperback edition.
