Praise

Praise for Helgoland:

“[An] intellectually exhilarating dive into the profoundest scientific conundrums.” —Booklist, STARRED REVIEW

“Physicist Rovelli (The Order of Time) dazzles with this look at the ‘almost psychedelic experience’ of understanding quantum theory…These are big ideas, but Rovelli easily leads readers through the knotty logic, often with lyricism…Readers who follow along will be left in awe.” —Publisher’s Weekly, STARRED REVIEW

“Charmingly idiosyncratic. . . . [Rovelli is] perhaps the finest author now writing on physics and the quantum world.” —The Article

“Rovelli’s gift is to bring difficult ideas down a level. His books continue a tradition of jargon-free popular scientific writing from Galileo to Darwin that disappeared in the academic specialisations of the past century. . . . As a happy integration of science, literature and philosophy, Helgoland owes something to the Italian chemist-writer Primo Levi. . . .Rovelli is a deep-thinking, restlessly inquiring spirit who sees no incompatibility between physics and philosophy – only mutual attraction.” —The Observer
