Inhaltsangabe

From award-winning physicist, public intellectual, and the bestselling author of A Universe from Nothing Lawrence Krauss, comes “a masterful blend of history, modern physics, and cosmic perspective that empowers the reader to not only embrace our understanding of the universe, but also revel in what remains to be discovered” (Neil deGrasse Tyson, American Museum of Natural History).

In this grand poetic vision of the universe, Lawrence Krauss tells the dramatic story of the discovery of the hidden world that underlies reality - and our place within it.

Reality is not what you think or sense - it’s weird, wild, and counterintuitive, and its inner workings seem at least as implausible as the idea that something can come from nothing.

With his trademark wit and accessible style, Krauss leads us to realms so small that they are invisible to microscopes, to the birth and rebirth of light, and into the natural forces that govern our existence. His unique blend of rigorous research and engaging storytelling invites us into the lives and minds of remarkable scientists who have helped unravel the unexpected fabric of reality with reasoning rather than superstition and dogma, and to explain how everything we see - and can’t see - came about. A passionate advocate for reason, Krauss gives the rationale for the seemingly irrational - and the mysteries and apparent contradictions of quantum physics, and explores what that means for our lives here on Earth - and beyond.

At its core, The Greatest Story Ever Told - So Far is about the best of what it means to be human - an epic history of our ultimately purposeless universe that addresses the question, “Why are we here?”

Kritikerstimmen

"The Greatest Story Ever Told - So Far ranges from Galileo to the LHC and beyond. It's accessible, illuminating, and surprising - an ideal guide for anyone interested in understanding our accidental universe." --Elizabeth Kolbert, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Sixth Extinction

"A rich, definitely not-dumbed-down history of physics.... An admirable complement to the author's previous book and equally satisfying for those willing to read carefully." --Kirkus

"In confident...prose, Krauss tells a story that both celebrates and explores science. Through it, he reminds readers why scientists build such complicated machinery and push the boundaries of the quantum world when nothing makes sense: 'For no more practical reason than to celebrate and explore the beauty of nature.'" --Publishers Weekly

Not suitable as audio book

This book is not suitable as an audiobook. The text is sometimes very complicated and having to replay some pieces is not my style. There are also a number of figures that help to explain the text - a bit hard when you are listening to an audiobook. The author tells the story and he has a pleasant way of speaking. No problems there.

a little bit too simple and kind of boring

It was a pretty interesting story (of course) and that man certainly knows his stuff, but at the end of the day he is not able to get it across as interestingly as others could have. At times it was a little bit boring and his analogies often seemed too easy and therefore put me off a bit. Also he wasn't really going into depth and often stopped at very interesting ideas with a too simple analogy. 3.5/5, I think he could have gone more into detail.

This really is the greatest story ever told!

This should be required reading for all students and politicians. Ban the teaching of religions to anyone under the age of18 and encourage them to hear this story.
