The Universe John Brockman Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

John Brockman brings together the world's best-known physicists and science writers—including Brian Greene, Walter Isaacson, Nobel Prize-winner Frank Wilczek, Benoit Mandelbrot, and Martin Rees—to explain the universe in all wondrous splendor.

In The Universe, today's most influential science writers explain the science behind our evolving understanding of the universe and everything in it, including the cutting edge research and discoveries that are shaping our knowledge.

Lee Smolin reveals how math and cosmology are helping us create a theory of the whole universe. Benoit Mandelbrot looks back on a career devoted to fractal geometry. Neil Turok analyzes the fundamental laws of nature, what came before the big bang, and the possibility of a unified theory.

Seth Lloyd investigates the impact of computational revolutions and the informational revolution. Lawrence Krauss provides fresh insight into gravity, dark matter, and the energy of empty space. Brian Greene and Walter Isaacson illuminate the genius who revolutionized modern science: Albert Einstein. And much more.

Explore the universe with some of today's greatest minds: what it is, how it came into being, and what may happen next.

  • Awesome

    Finally! I have a book that is a little mentally challenging. It is great for updating yourself on new theories in physics. As a science book reader, I'm happy this book is deeper than just stars and relativity, and instead gives an even greater picture of our universe and others around ours-from gravitational fluctuations to dimensional energies.😎🔬🔭
  • Fascinating, but...

    If you’re seriusly into astronomy and physics and all that universe stuff, its a fascinating book. But fair warning: its not the world’s easiest read. You may find yourself having to go back and re-read chapters because the weighty concepts themselves, coupled with the scientific terminology, may not always slide quickly into your mind like a well lubricated suppository. But the effort is worth it. We know an awful lot about the universe now, and there’s an awful lot we still don;t know, and its fascinating to learn the specifics of both.
