Praise

“It doesn’t take a degree in astrophysics or expertise on Albert Einstein to appreciate White Holes. . . . a book that says as much about imagination and exploration as it does about physics. . . . Rovelli helps readers grasp how important imagination is to seeing the universe in new ways, for both artists and scientists.” —Associated Press
 
“If you want to remember why you once fell in love with the idea of the cosmos, or want to fall in love with that idea for the first time, then this book is for you. For my part, I found myself following Rovelli into a weird and wonderful new universe and I was very content to be there.” —Observer (UK)

“It is always worth reading Rovelli. He writes like he believes you are as learned and clever as he is. Yet he also writes with such care for your ignorance that it feels every page is urging and coaxing you—a non-physicist—to see what he can see.” —TThe Times (UK)

White Holes edifies, excites, and even transforms me. Rovelli summons us to novel forms of knowledge while also breathing life into questions that affect all sentient beings, such as: how do we proceed when our guides no longer suffice? I’m grateful for the warm invitation to the journey.” —Maggie Nelson

“Meet the new Stephen Hawking.” —The Sunday Times (UK)
 
“No one writes about the cosmos like theoretical physicist Carlo Rovelli.” —The Washington Post

“Carlo Rovelli is a genius and an amazing communicator. . . . What I love about this writing is that it always comes back to people—people interacting with other people, who are interacting with their world. This is the place where science comes to life.” —Neil Gaiman
 
“The physicist known for making complex science intelligible.” —Financial Times

“One of the warmest, most elegant and most lucid interpreters to the laity of the dazzling enigmas of his discipline.” —John Banville, The Wall Street Journal
