THE PHENOMENAL BESTSELLER

'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

'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.

Mind not blown away

Got this book based on the raging past reviews that basically claim it to be a masterpiece. It is not. If you have always been interested in (astro-)physics you will likely not learn much. The last chapter in particular (spoilers ahead!) is an utterly pessimistic outlook for the human species which I found disappointing. Don’t we study science not just because we are ultimately curious, but also to better society and improve life for all? Climate change is not an inevitable doomsday scenario. The question is how and when we act as a human race and how big the ‚overshoot‘ will be. We have the means and ability to fix it, probably faster than we think possible now… we just have to want to.
