Omschrijving

Popular science has rarely been so good

Popular science has rarely been so good

The greatest populariser of physics today. . . We are left in a world that is not disenchanted by science, but even more magical. A triumph

Theoretical physics often feels rather mystical. This mind-bending, lively book by the bestselling physicist Carlo Rovelli reinforces that other-wordly feeling. . . unforgettable

Rovelli is often called the poet of physics. He writes elegant, wondering, enlarging books on time and quantum theory, much in the spirit of a priest bringing the word of God to his congregation, and I've found it good for my soul to be confronted with how little I understand the world and everything in it

One of the warmest, most elegant and most lucid interpreters of the dazzling enigmas of his discipline. . . A momentous book



His most beautiful book yet. . . leaves an unforgettable impression of its author as a man struggling at the furthest limits of human comprehension

A deep-thinking, restlessly inquiring spirit. . . His books continue a tradition of popular scientific writing from Galileo to Darwin that disappeared in the academic specialisations of the past century

Another brilliant book by Rovelli. . . You'll have fun

If anyone can make sense of the topsy-turvy, counterintuitive world of quantum physics, it is Carlo Rovelli, the most poetically minded of today's science communicators



A remarkably wide-ranging new meditation on quantum theory. . . With the light touch of a skilled storyteller. . . Rovelli is not afraid to mix quantum physics and eastern philosophy

A great tonic for long-isolated minds . . . a thrilling story, written with Rovelli's accustomed wit and panache. After reading him, you'll look at the grains of beach sand between your toes with an entirely new eye

Inspiring. . . Without mathematics or experiment, by page 81 your thoughts are at the frontier of quantum theory

A delight . . . it is a pleasure to travel in Rovelli's company

Travelogue meets biography meets a masterful explanation of quantum theory in this warm and fascinating account

Explained with uncanny insight and lyrical grace

A new vision, one with a remarkable power in delivering new answers to old quantum riddles. . . original and graceful

Bracing and refreshing. . . Rovelli is offering a new way to understand not just the world but our place in it, too

Carlo Rovelli is a genius and an amazing communicator. . . What I love about his writing is that it always comes back to people -- people interacting with other people, who are interacting with their world. This is the place where science comes to life

When life feels strange, Rovelli's books remind me that there is beauty in the strangeness

Rovelli is a brilliant and lucid teacher who uses his understanding of theoretical physics and the quantum world to talk about the complexity of our everyday reality

Carlo Rovelli's imaginative rigour, his lively humour and his beautiful writing are inspiring



Rovelli opens windows onto the imagination for all of us

I always find with Carlo Rovelli's books that there are moments when you get a real hit of understanding -- a jigsaw in your mind that just falls into place

Helgoland is a wonderful guide to the most extraordinary story in physics. It will reset your view of the universe

Hooked me so hard I read the entire book in one sitting. And then twice more

The old, solid world, if you believed in it at all, breaks into a glorious shimmer of limitless potential

Rovelli has an uncanny knack for instilling wonder and explaining complex theories in plain, entertaining ways

I'm keen for everyone to read Helgoland: a wonderfully lucid and poetic account of the foundations of quantum physics. It combines a compelling history with Rovelli's own intriguing - and for me very appealing - views about the basis of all things

Carlo Rovelli is a theoretical physicist who has made significant contributions to the physics of space and time. He has worked in Italy and the US, and is currently directing the quantum gravity research group of the Centre de physique théorique in Marseille, France. His books Seven Brief Lessons on Physics, Helgoland, Reality Is Not What It Seems and The Order of Time are international bestsellers which have been translated into forty-three languages.
