Abstract:

"Quantum physics, black holes, string theory, the Big Bang, dark matter, dark energy, parallel universes: even if we are interested in these fundamental concepts of our world, their language is the language of math. Which means that despite our best intentions of finally grasping, say, Einstein's Theory of General Relativity, most of us are quickly brought up short by a snarl of nasty equations or an incomprehensible graph. The book employs the immediacy of simple, direct language to show us, not explain to us, the theories that underpin everything we know about our universe. Galfard renders these complex ideas in an immediate and visceral way."--Provided by publisher.
