Seven Brief Lessons on Physics


rovelliIn Seven Brief Lessons on Physics, Italian theoretical physicist Carlo Rovelli briefly, but eloquently, breaks down key concepts in the intimidating field of science. Rovelli, one of the founders of the loop quantum gravity theory, highlights fundamental theories and major scientists in lessons on relativity, particles, black holes and more. He does this in such a way as to instill in the reader an appreciation for what has already been accomplished in the field, and sense of wonder for all that we still don’t know. Supporting images and clear description help to ensure that nothing is lost on a non-expert audience. I enthusiastically suggest it for those looking for an introduction to the subject and/or fans of the Cosmos series who are in need of a refresher.
