    Brought to you by Penguin. 

    The number one best-selling author of The Order of Time is back with a stunning book about the enigma of quantum physics.

    In June 1925, 23-year-old Werner Heisenberg, suffering from hay fever, retreated to a small, treeless island in the North Sea called Helgoland. It was there that he came up with one of the most transformative scientific concepts: quantum theory.

    Almost a century later, quantum physics has given us many startling ideas: ghost waves, distant objects that seem magically connected to each other, cats that are both dead and alive. Countless experiments have led to practical applications that shape our daily lives. Today our understanding of the world around us is based on this theory. And yet it is still profoundly mysterious.

    In this enchanting book, Carlo Rovelli, one of our most celebrated scientists, tells the extraordinary story of quantum physics and reveals its deep meaning: a world made of substances is replaced by a world made of relations, each particle responding to another in a never ending game of mirrors.

    Shifting our perspective once again, Rovelli takes us on a riveting journey through the universe so we can better understand our place in it.

    Helgoland remembered

    I very much enjoyed listening to this book. Helgoland willl for this listener now remain as an almost mythical place where Heisenberg glimpsed for the first time deeper truths about the quantum reality of our universe.
    Rovelli writes the most beautiful prose of any living writer in the genre of popularised physics. I’ve listened to a lot of titles about physics, and his books do stand out both for their clarity but also elegant and succinct phrasing and composition.
    His exposition of the different interpretations of quantum physics was very good. I also thought his take down and critique in the final section of Chamers and Nagel’s ideas about consciousness were right up my alley…
    I’ll order the book as paperback today.
