about this item

Instant New York Times Bestseller“Short and resonant. . . . The essays in Seven Brief Lessons on Physics arrive like shots of espresso.”The New York Times“A startling and illustrative distillation of centuries of science.”—The Economist “Lean, lucid and enchanting.”—New Scientist  The international bestseller that reveals all the beauty of modern physics in seven short and enlightening lessons  Seven Brief Lessons on Physics is a book about the joy of discovery. Carlo Rovelli brings a playful, entertaining, and mind-bending introduction to modern physics, offering surprising—and surprisingly easy to grasp—explanations of Einstein's general relativity, quantum mechanics, elementary particles, gravity, black holes, the complex architecture of the universe, and the role humans play in this weird and wonderful world. He takes us to the frontiers of our knowledge: to the most minute reaches of the fabric of space, back to the origins of the cosmos, and into the workings of our minds. “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,” Rovelli writes. “And it’s breathtaking.”From the Hardcover edition.
