―Jordan Ellenberg, New York Times besteselling writer of How to not Be Wrong

Quantum physics, black holes, string conception, the massive Bang, darkish topic, darkish power, parallel universes: whether we're drawn to those basic recommendations of our international, their language is the language of math. which means regardless of our greatest intentions of ultimately greedy, say, Einstein's thought of common Relativity, so much people are speedy stated brief by means of a snarl of nasty equations or an incomprehensible graph.

Christophe Galfard's challenge in existence is to unfold smooth medical rules to most people in pleasing methods. utilizing his huge abilities as a super theoretical physicist and profitable younger grownup writer, The Universe on your Hand employs the immediacy of easy, direct language to teach us, no longer clarify to us, the theories that underpin every thing we all know approximately our universe. to appreciate what occurs to a demise megastar, we're requested to photograph ourselves floating in area in entrance of it. To get conversant in the quantum global, we're reduced in size to the dimensions of an atom after which taken on a trip. utilising daily similes and metaphors, addressing the reader at once, and writing tales instead of equations renders those astoundingly complicated rules in an instantaneous and visceral means.

Utterly attractive and completely certain, The Universe on your Hand will locate its position between different classics within the field.
