Reviews
Praise for Rovelli and There Are Places

"Provocative. . . . Rovelli's fans will enjoy having this on their shelves." --Publishers Weekly

"Rovelli delights. His facility with science and philosophy is exemplary." --Kirkus

"Meet the new Stephen Hawking." --The Sunday Times

"Some physicists, mind you, not many of them, are physicist-poets. They see the world or, more adequately, physical reality, as a lyrical narrative written in some hidden code that the human mind can decipher. Carlo Rovelli, the Italian physicist and author, is one of them." --NPR Cosmos & Culture

"The physicist known for making complex science intelligible." --Financial Times

"If your desire to be awestruck by the universe we inhabit needs refreshing, theoretical physicist Carlo Rovelli...is up to the task." --Elle
