  • A global superstar... Professor Rovelli is making the grammar of the universe accessible to a new generation

    Channel 4 News
  • The most fun physicist to be with -- as well as the greatest explainer of physics

    Bryan Appleyard, Sunday Times
  • Surely Rovelli deserves the title 'world's most inspiring physics teacher'

  • The physicist transforming how we see the universe

    Financial Times
  • The new Hawking... His writing is luminous. By the time I had finished reading I was in serious awe of the author

    David Aaronovitch, The Times
  • This is a really, really good book about science. It's like a tonic for the mind. Carlo Rovelli is a physicist so of course this book is about physics. But it's much more than that. It's about thinking clearly... He gives beautifully clear explanations of the ideas of the cleverest people in history, from Democritus, via Newton, to Einstein and beyond.

    Evening Standard
  • Rather brilliant... for fans of cutting-edge physics made accessible

    Mark Haddon
  • The latest thinking in physics is distilled in this primer... Why do you need yet another popularisation of theoretical physics? Because Rovelli writes with crystalline simplicity. And because he turns quantum physics into a coherent story, shaping it as a quest for a single, underlying "substratum" of reality - from Democritus's finite, indivisible atoms to Einstein

    James McConnachie, Sunday Times
  • A comprehensive guide to the bewitching adventure of physics

    Daily Telegraph
  • Rovelli writes with elegance, clarity and charm... A joy to read, as well as being an intellectual feast
