Synopsis

THE PHENOMENAL BESTSELLER



'With this million-selling book, Rovelli took his place with Stephen Hawking and Richard Feynman as one of the great popularisers of modern theoretical physics' - Sam Leith, Spectator



Everything you need to know about modern physics, the universe and our place in the world in seven enlightening lessons



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.

All it takes is an open mind to understand these delightful explorations of the wonders of the fabric of the universe itself. Rovelli is a Carl Sagan-style polymath, at home with poetry as much as protons, and his elegant explanation, for example, of Einstein’s general theory of relativity, which first explained how gravity works 100 years ago, is a celebration of science at its most exhilarating and profound.
