Reviews

  • In Carlo Rovelli modern physics has found its poet. A captivating, fascinating, profoundly beautiful book. . . Rovelli is a wonderfully humane, gentle and witty guide for he is as much philosopher and poet as he is a scientist

    John Banville, Irish Times
  • Rovelli is a wonderful writer. . . The ideas in The Order of Time are extraordinary, and I rather fear you should read it

    Nick Hornby, Believer
  • I consider Carlo Rovelli to be a poet as much as a physicist. . . Everybody should read this book

    Es Devlin
  • A dazzling book. . . Meet the new Stephen Hawking. . . I've never seen special relativity explained so well, never visualised it less fuzzily, never felt such a jolt of shock at what it implies

    James McConnachie, Sunday Times
  • The superstar physicist who wants to make science accessible to all

  • A joy to read. . . Rovelli writes easily, vividly and brilliantly - he is as at ease with Beethoven as he is with Boltzmann's constant, and verses by Horace launch each chapter, one of which ends with a couplet from the Grateful Dead. . . A delight

    Tim Radford, Guardian
  • A dizzying, poetic work in which I found myself abandoning everything I thought I knew about time

    Charlotte Higgins, Guardian
  • Physics' literary superstar makes us rethink time. . . The Order of Time will surely establish Rovelli among the pantheon of great scientist-communicators. . . More of this please

    Philip Ball, New Scientist
  • Rovelli is one of our great scientific explicators. . . Not since Stephen Hawking's A Brief History of Time has there been so genial an integration of physics and philosophy

    Ian Thomson, Observer
  • We live in an age of wonderful science writing, and Carlo Rovelli's The Order of Time, is an example of the very best. Time is something we think we know about instinctively; here he shows how profoundly strange it really is

    Philip Pullman, Guardian
