Description

From the best-selling author of Seven Brief Lessons on Physics comes a new audiobook about the mind-bending nature of the universe.

Penguin presents the unabridged downloadable audiobook edition of Reality Is Not What It Seems by Carlo Rovelli, read by Roy McMillan.

What are time and space made of? Where does matter come from? And what exactly is reality?

Scientist Carlo Rovelli has spent his whole life exploring these questions and pushing the boundaries of what we know. Here he explains how our image of the world has changed throughout centuries. From Aristotle to Albert Einstein, Michael Faraday to the Higgs boson, he takes us on a wondrous journey to show us that beyond our ever-changing idea of reality is a whole new world that has yet to be discovered.

Un merveilleux voyage dans le temps et l'espace

Ce livre retrace l'histoire des sciences depuis Democrite jusqu'aux dernière recherche sur la gravitation quantique à boucle. C'est très bien écrit, très bien vulgarisé, ce qui le rend accessible à tous. La voix du lecteur est très agréable à écouter et vous transportera de la Grèce au big bounce.

Rovelli is a master

This and Seven Brief Lessons are two of my favorite books of the year. Rovelli communicates advanced physics clearly, with imagination, and with such a great sense of humanity and the arts. I rarely listen to books twice, but these are the exceptions.

Sparkling foundational history of physics

The history makes sense of current thought
Then listen to the last half as many times as it takes.

great

Requires some knowledge of science, but definitely trying to also speak to the non-physicist . Great also for those needing the latest on physics. New concepts on space, time and gravity.

So good l am so happy to study at Albert Einstein’s Uni@ ETH Zürich

The entire current technology is build on Faraday, the poor London experimentor and theoretical physics: build math equations on the intuition and vision of Faraday. Happy birthday Faraday 25th August 18

A beautifully written and engaging text

One of the best audiobooks I have listened to and always in my library. I have listened to the book three times so far and still working on catching all the details, but have enjoyed listening immensely each time. Carlo Rovelli manages to inject poetry into quantum physics, his enthusiasm for his subject is infectious, and Roy McMillan narration is fantastic. The book gives a very good overview of quantum gravity and spin foam theory in their historical context. Wholeheartedly and unreservedly recommended.

The most brilliant book on physics

I just couldn't stop listening to this book. I am totally in love with the stories, narration, the view on history and physics evolvement.
May be it's because the author is an Italian? but his way of describing complex theories beautifully, poetically and sometimes metaphorically makes this book absolutely unique. I hope he'll continue writing.
Highly recommended!
