Product description

Review

"well-written and in an engaging style." --Winnipeg Free Press

"Fascinating...Orrell is an engaging and witty writer." --The Sunday Times

"Orrell maps a sweeping history of the physical sciences, a history riddled with the search for harmony, unity, symmetry-and a search that was at times very successful." --Literary Review of Canada
