Everything you need to know about modern physics, the universe and our place in the world in seven enlightening lessons 'Here,
on the edge of what we know, in contact with the ocean of the unknown,
shines the mystery and the beauty of the world. And it's breathtaking'
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 introduction to
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.
