‘Extraordinary’ Leonard Susskind
‘A rare event’ Sean Carroll
_____

When leading theoretical physicist Professor Michael Dine was asked where you could find an accessible and authoritative book that would teach you about the Big Bang, Dark Matter, the Higgs boson and the cutting edge of physics now, he had nothing he could recommend.

So he wrote it himself.

In This Way to the Universe, Dine takes us on a fascinating tour through the history of modern physics – from Newtonian mechanics to quantum, from particle to nuclear physics – delving into the wonders of our universe at its largest, smallest, and within our daily lives. If you are looking for the one book to help you understand physics, written in language anyone can follow, this is it.
