Reality is Not What it Seems: The Journey to Quantum Gravity

by Carlo Rovelli - £9.99  Penguin Books Ltd (2017)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780141983219 | ISBN 10: 0141983213

From the bestselling author of Seven Brief Lessons on Physics comes a new book about the mind-bending nature of the universe.
 
Do space and time truly exist? What is reality made of? Can we understand its deep texture?
 
Scientist Carlo Rovelli has spent his whole life exploring these questions and pushing the boundaries of what we know. In this mind-expanding book, he shows how our understanding of reality has changed throughout centuries, from Democritus to loop quantum gravity. Taking us on a wondrous journey, he invites us to imagine a whole new world where black holes are waiting to explode, spacetime is made up of grains, and infinity does not exist -- a vast universe still largely undiscovered.
