Product Description

Carlo Rovelli (Author)
Carlo Rovelli is a theoretical physicist who has made significant contributions to the physics of space and time. He has worked in Italy and the US, and is currently directing the quantum gravity research group of the Centre de physique théorique in Marseille, France. His books Seven Brief Lessons on Physics, Helgoland, Reality Is Not What It Seems and The Order of Time are international bestsellers which have been translated into forty-three languages.

A sensation... the new cult bookAbsolutely fascinating... explains the entire universe in 79 pagesThe 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 authorHonestly I cannot recommend it too strongly... One of the fastest selling science titles of all time because it is so clearThe perfect antidote to the fluff and nonsense around right now. Learn how the world is and how you might just fit inThe essays in Seven Brief Lessons on Physics arrive like shots of espresso, which you can consume the way the Italians do, quickly and while standing upThe most fun physicist to be with -- as well as the greatest explainer of physicsThere's a book I've been carrying around like a small Bible, Seven Brief Lessons on PhysicsWith 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 physicsA global superstar... Professor Rovelli is making the grammar of the universe accessible to a new generationThe physicist transforming how we see the universeSurely Rovelli deserves the title 'world's most inspiring physics teacher'An amuse bouche for some of the ideas that are wrapped up in 20th-century astrophysics where it borders on philosophy. Millions have digested this little treatIf you've ever wanted to understand physics better, read Carlo Rovelli's masterful book, Seven Brief Lessons on Physics. One of the world's leading scientists, he explains concepts like relativity, quantum mechanics and black holes with an elegance and clarity that reminded me of Richard Feynman... You will probably find yourself coming back to it again and againWonderfully clear and vivid. Carlo Rovelli manages to convey the mystery of very large things and very small things with brilliant effectA sublime read... The triumph of this book is that it educates you, guides you, and brings you bang up to date with the central issues in theoretical physics today... Intriguing, captivating and magicalIf you want to understand what gets physicists out of bed in the morning, there is no better guide than Rovelli... Seven Brief Lessons on Physics is an absorbing, lovely book... This is physics as romantic poetry and, by God, it's beguilingA startling and illustrative distillation of centuries of science... The book's triumph lies not only in presenting some of the headiest stuff science has produced in so few pages, but also in giving real insight into how science treats those ideasThere have been plenty of attempts in recent years to explain the basic concepts of physics to us, but few as elegant and concise as Carlo Rovelli's... there's enough food for thought here to last a lifetimeSparse, elegant and most of all readable... at the end of it you feel more clever. Rovelli has achieved something unheard of in books about theoretical physics: most of the people who have started his book have also probably finished itA surprise bestseller... the most interesting of the year's science booksIt is amazing that such a short book can dig to such satisfying depthsThe slim volume is stereotypically the province of poetry, but this beautifully designed little book shows that science, with its curiosity, its intense engagement with what there really is, its readiness to jettison received ways of seeing, is a kind of poetry tooRovelli has a rare knack for conveying the top line of scientific theories in clear and compelling terms without succumbing to the lure of elaborate footnotes... a breath of fresh airA slim poetic meditation... Rovelli belongs to a great Italian tradition of one-culture science writing that encompasses the Roman poet Lucretius, Galileo, Primo Levi and Italo Calvino. The physics here is comprehensible and limpid, and Rovelli gives it an edge through his clear-eyed humanistic interpretationsThe book to read if you know very little about modern physics but want to begin to grasp its wonder, and the potential it has to enrich our understanding of the universe and our place in itTotally gripping. . . full of thought-provoking ideas. . . very beautifulIf you only ever read one book on physics, read this. Beautifully written and engagingThe rare book about physics that can be ingested in a single sittingUtterly blown away by the concise beauty of Seven Brief Lessons on Physics by Carlo Rovelli. Science as poetry. Awe inspiringNo one should hold office unless they have read Carlo Rovelli's Seven Brief Lessons on PhysicsBrilliant... Rovelli writes with clarity and verve, vividly bringing to life concepts that can often appear incomprehensible, and inviting readers to see the world anew. Few writers, let alone physicists, capture the beauty of nature and the excitement of its discovery in such clear, rich prose... It's hard to imagine a more coherent, inspiring introduction to modern physics. It really is an enchanting little volumeCarlo Rovelli has never been afraid to challenge the status quoIt's like a love letter to physics. You can't believe everyone isn't reading this, and you want to tell everyone about it... to be able to have access to these ideas in a way that inspires me is thrillingI loved this book. The final chapter is filled with breathless amazement and humble awe... it's almost trippy

THE PHENOMENAL BESTSELLER FROM THE AUTHOR OF HELGOLAND AND THE ORDER OF TIME

'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

'By God, it's beguiling' New Statesman

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 mind-bending overview of 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. Not since Richard Feynman's celebrated Six Easy Pieces has physics been so vividly, intelligently and entertainingly revealed.
