Reviews

"A splendid, edifying report from the front lines of theorectical physics . . . A wonderful gift." The San Francisco Chronicle

" "An uncommonly clear and confident account . . . Even those who differ with many of Smolin's contentions can applaud his bringing physicists' anguished night thoughts into the clear light of day."--Tim Ferris

"If you want to think in new ways about the interconnected universe around you, read Lee Smolin's provocative, inspiring book."--Margaret Geller

"The best book about contemporary science written for the layman that I have ever read ... Read this book. Twice."

The Times of London
