Everything is connected.

We're living in the midst of a scientific revolution that's captured the general public's attention and imagination. The aim of this new revolution is to develop a "theory of everything," a set of laws of physics that will explain all that can be explained, ranging from the tiniest subatomic particle to the universe as a whole. Here, listeners will learn the ideas behind the theories and their effects upon our world, our civilization, and ourselves.

In this guide you get:

–Clear explanations of quantum mechanics, Einstein's theories of relativity, and how string theory unites them

–A quick, easy-to-understand overview of competing theories and how they might be tested

–Fast facts about black holes, what's inside them, how they're made, and why they're so deeply paradoxical

–Simple, smart tips to help you visualize extra dimensions

Wrap your head around a big idea.
