The instant New York Times bestseller SEVEN BRIEF LESSONS ON PHYSICS introduces readers to the seven most transformative physics breakthroughs of recent centuries. With clear, lucid, and compelling language, Carlo Rovelli explains general relativity, quantum mechanics, elementary particles, gravity, black holes, the complex architecture of the universe, and, finally, the role of humans in the strange world he describes. Rovelli, a renowned theoretical physicist and head of the quantum gravity group at the Centre de Physique Théorique of Aix-Marseille University, is one of the founders of the loop quantum gravity theory, a breakthrough in the effort to unify Einstein’s theory of general relativity and the study of quantum mechanics. His career and accomplishments make him a singularly qualified guide to modern physics, but it is his ability to distill complex concepts in passionate, poetic terms that have made this short guide to physics such a sensation.
