Description

Max Tegmark leads us on an astonishing journey through past, present, and future, and through the physics, astronomy, and mathematics that are the foundation of his work, most particularly his hypothesis that our physical reality is a mathematical structure and his theory of the ultimate multiverse. In a dazzling combination of both popular and groundbreaking science, he not only helps us grasp his often mind-boggling theories, but he also shares with us some of the often surprising triumphs and disappointments that have shaped his life as a scientist. Fascinating from first to last - here is a book for the full science-reading spectrum.

Max Tegmark is author or co-author of more than 200 technical papers, twelve of which have been cited more than 500 times. He has featured in dozens of science documentaries, and his work with the SDSS collaboration on galaxy clustering shared the first prize in Science magazine's "Breakthrough of the Year: 2003". He holds a Ph.D from the University of California, Berkeley, and is a physics professor at MIT.

Reviews

  • An extremely ambitious and relevant book

    It is refreshing to read a book in which all the main scientific and philosophical questions of our age get attention and are tentatively solved. Obviously i do not have the mathematical baggage to declare plausible what this author says. But i read this book in wonder at the possibilities. It was stimulating enough for me to look for other sources of information and certainly i drop my hat and salute a mind that have the scope and wit to concoct this wonderful cosmic view in a popular, accessible book.
