Seven Brief Lessons on Physics

Carlo Rovelli

Overview

Science is a fascinating subject - yet many of us are afraid of the unknown, and of its potential complexity. But the advances of modern science can always be broken down into digestible pieces that any curious soul can understand - if they're willing to let go of their preconceived ideas and insecurities.

It's crazy to think that we once didn't know about atoms or galaxies. The more we look into it, the more we can notice the similarities between the micro and macro worlds. As our knowledge of the laws of physics grows, so does our curiosity.

What are the main tenets of physics that explain the way the universe works? What's the current state of this subject today? These are some of the questions we get answers to in Seven Brief Lessons on Physics. Taking a deep dive into the current works of researchers and the most recent discoveries in science has never seemed so fascinating!

"In his youth, Albert Einstein spent a year loafing aimlessly. You don't get anywhere by not 'wasting' time - something, unfortunately, that the parents of teenagers tend frequently to forget."

Carlo Rovelli, Simon Carnell, Erica Segre
