Product description

Review

‘Carroll takes us by the hand and with a benign smile and a chatty style, leads us to a place where…at every instant an almost infinite number of copies of you are splitting off to live alternative lives… a wild conceptual ride.’

-- Sunday Times, BOOKS OF THE YEAR

‘Tackling huge questions, myths and conundrums about our Universe is no easy task, but Carroll does so elegantly.’

-- BBC Science Focus

'An authoritative and beautifully written account of the quest to understand quantum theory and the origin of space and time.

Sean Carroll is a rare combination of excellent science writer and excellent research scientist. His writing exhibits a clarity of thought that is only available through a deep understanding of the subject. When the book becomes speculative, as it must because it deals with deep and as yet unsolved questions, we know we are in good hands.'

Brian Cox - Broadcaster and Professor of Particle Physics at the University of Manchester

'Something Deeply Hidden is Carroll’s ambitious and engaging foray into what quantum mechanics really means and what it tells us about physical reality.'

-- Science Magazine

'As a smart and intensely readable undergraduate class in the history of quantum theory and the nature of quantum mechanics, Something Deeply Hidden could scarcely be improved.'

-- Open Letters Monthly ― Steve Donoghue

'Readers in this universe (and others?) will relish the opportunity to explore the frontiers of science in the company of titans.'

-- Booklist

'Fans of popular science authors such as Neil deGrasse Tyson and John Gribbin will find great joy while exploring these groundbreaking concepts.'

-- Library Journal

'Solid arguments and engaging historical backdrop will captivate science-minded readers everywhere.'

-- Scientific Inquirer

'Carroll argues with a healthy restlessness that makes his book more interesting than so many others in the quantum physics genre.'

-- Forbes

'If you want to know why some people take [the Everett] approach seriously and what you can do with it, then Carroll’s latest is one of the best popular books on the market.'

-- Physics Today

'Be prepared to deal with some equations ― and to have your mind blown.'

-- Geek Wire

'By far the most articulate and cogent defence of the Many-Worlds view in book-length depth with a close connection to the latest ongoing research.'

-- Science News

'Enlightening and refreshingly bold.'

-- Scientific American

'What makes Carroll’s new project so worthwhile, though, is that while he is most certainly choosing sides in the debate, he offers us a cogent, clear and compelling guide to the subject while letting his passion for the scientific questions shine through every page.'

-- NPR

‘Like all great writers, Carroll has the remarkable ability of putting the reader utterly at ease with his lucid and addictive prose. He leads you so gently and comfortably into his quantum world that you quickly forget you are being given access to the most profound ideas about the nature of reality.’

-- Jim Al-Khalili, author of Quantum Mechanics (A Ladybird Expert Book)

‘A thrilling tour through what is perhaps humankind’s greatest intellectual achievement – quantum mechanics. With bold clarity, Carroll deftly unmasks quantum weirdness to reveal a strange but utterly wondrous reality.’

-- Brian Greene, author of The Elegant Universe

‘Sean Carroll’s immensely enjoyable Something Deeply Hidden brings readers face-to-face with the fundamental quantum weirdness of the universe – or should I say universes? And by the end, you may catch yourself finding quantum weirdness not all that weird.’

-- Jordan Ellenberg, author of How Not to Be Wrong

‘Carroll gives us a front-row seat to the development of a new vision of physics: one that connects our everyday experiences to a dizzying hall-of-mirrors universe in which our very sense of self is challenged. It’s a fascinating idea, and one that just might hold clues to a deeper reality.’

-- Katie Mack, theoretical astrophysicist, North Carolina State University, author of The End of Everything (forthcoming)

‘Sean Carroll beautifully clarifies the debate about the foundations of quantum mechanics, and champions the most elegant, courageous approach: the astonishing “Many-Worlds” interpretation. His explanations of its pros and cons are clear, even-handed, and philosophically gobsmacking.’

-- Steven Strogatz, author of Infinite Powers

‘[A] challenging, provocative book…moving smoothly through different topics and from objects as small as particles to those as enormous as black holes, Carroll’s exploration of quantum theory introduces readers to some of the most groundbreaking ideas in physics today.’

Publishers Weekly

‘Sean Carroll is always lucid and funny, gratifyingly readable, while still excavating depths… A fascinating and important book.’

-- Janna Levin, author of Black Hole Blues

‘Irresistible and an absolute treat to read. While this is a book about some of the deepest current mysteries in physics, it is also a book about metaphysics as Carroll lucidly guides us on how to not only think about the true and hidden nature of reality but also how to make sense of it. I loved this book.’

-- Priyamvada Natarajan, theoretical astrophysicist, Yale University, and author of Mapping the Heavens

‘A masterpiece…stands along with Feynman’s QED as one of the two best popularizations of quantum mechanics I’ve ever seen.’

-- Scott Aaronson, Professor of Computer Science, University of Texas at Austin, and Director of UT’s Quantum Information Center

‘From physicist Sean Carroll comes a history of quantum discoveries, and a guide to a subject that has baffled and blinded with its potential. Tackling huge questions, myths and conundrums about our Universe is no easy task, but Carroll does so elegantly.’

Sean Carroll is Homewood Professor of Natural Philosophy at Johns Hopkins University and Fractal Faculty at the Santa Fe Institute. His research focuses on fundamental issues in quantum mechanics, gravitation, statistical mechanics, and cosmology. He has wide-ranging interests, including in philosophy, complexity theory, and information.

Carroll is an active science communicator, and has been blogging regularly since 2004. His textbook "Spacetime and Geometry" has been adopted by a number of universities for their graduate courses in general relativity. He is a frequent public speaker, and has appeared on TV shows such as The Colbert Report and Through The Wormhole with Morgan Freeman. He has produced a set of lectures for The Teaching Company on dark matter and dark energy, and another on the nature of time. He has served as a science consultant for films such as Thor and TRON: Legacy, as well as for TV shows such as Fringe and Bones.

His 2010 popular book, "From Eternity to Here," explained the arrow of time and connected it with the origin of our universe. "The Particle at the End of the Universe," about the Large Hadron Collider and the quest to discover the Higgs boson, was released November 2012, "The Big Picture: On the Origins of Life, Meaning, and the Universe Itself" in May 2016, and "Something Deeply Hidden: Quantum Worlds and the Emergence of Spacetime" in 2019. His next book project is "The Biggest Ideas in the Universe," which will consist of three books. The first, "Space, Time, and Motion," appears in September 2022.
