CarloRovelli, a renowned theoretical physicist, is a delightfully poetic and philosophical scientific guide. He takes us to the frontiers of our knowledge: to the most minute reaches of the fabric of space, back to the origins of the cosmos, and into the workings of our minds. Thebook celebrates the joy of discovery.';Here, on the edge of what we know, in contact with the ocean of the unknown, shines the mystery and the beauty of the world,' Rovelli writes. ';And it's breathtaking.'
