"This short book is a detailed look at the most recent and important issues in modern physics and it is written in a very accessible and readable format. The ease with which Rovelli has conveyed these complex ideas is absorbing - this is high level stuff that is not dumbed-down at all; it is rather explained in simple words that eschew the jargon usually associated with science. A perfect gift for someone wanting to know more about the world and universe around them."— Raul

“With a deft sensibility associated more often with poetry than theoretical physics, Seven Brief Lessons on Physics not only makes understandable the transcendent physical discoveries of the past century, but also reveals their powerful relevance to the human spirit. A revelatory and concise account of quantum mechanics, relativity, and the delight in both finding answers and seeking new questions, this jewel of a book lyrically demystifies the extraordinary realities of the cosmos.”
