Review

There's a book I've been carrying around like a small Bible, Seven Brief Lessons on Physics (Benedict Cumberbatch)

With the publication of his million-selling Seven Brief Lessons on Physics, Carlo Rovelli took his place with Stephen Hawking and Richard Feynman as one of the great popularisers of modern theoretical physics (Sam Leith Spectator)

Honestly I cannot recommend it too strongly... one of the fastest selling science titles of all time because it is so clear (Jeremy Vine BBC Radio 2)

The man who makes physics sexy... the new Hawking... His writing is luminous. By the time I had finished reading I was in serious awe of the author (David Aaronovitch The Times)

The perfect antidote to the fluff and nonsense around right now. Learn how the world is and how you might just fit in (Simon Mayo Daily Mirror)

The most fun physicist to be with -- as well as the greatest explainer of physics (Bryan Appleyard Sunday Times)

A global superstar... Professor Rovelli is making the grammar of the universe accessible to a new generation (Channel 4 News)

Surely Rovelli deserves the title 'world's most inspiring physics teacher' (Daily Telegraph)

The physicist transforming how we see the universe (Financial Times)

A sensation... the new cult book (Katie Law Evening Standard)

Product Description

THE PHENOMENAL BESTSELLER

'There's a book I've been carrying around like a small Bible, Seven Brief Lessons on Physics' - Benedict Cumberbatch

Everything you need to know about modern physics, the universe and your 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 beautiful and 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. In under eighty pages, readers will understand the most transformative scientific discoveries of the twentieth century and what they mean for us. Not since Richard Feynman's celebrated best-seller Six Easy Pieces has physics been so vividly, intelligently and entertainingly revealed.
