Format: Paperback
This book makes some grandiose claims for itself on its back cover:

"The sheer scope of this monumental work makes its achievement difficult to summarize. In essence though utilizing arguments only from modern physics and its underlying logic Principia Logica demonstrates how the very existence and also the particular form of our universe can be accounted for out of absolutely nothing. Along the way it also reveals several key discoveries such as the curved nature of time, entropy conservation, the hyperspheric form of the universe and numerous other things. Also showcased is a comprehensive programme for the revival of Logicism and Logical Empiricism as an overarching context for our knowledge. Finally, (in an explosive appendix) the work also includes a formal proof of the indeterminacy of prime number distribution (and an associated informal proof of the P versus NP problem) and also a formal expression of the Riemann Hypothesis as a statement about entropy. All in all Principia Logica represents probably the single greatest intellectual achievement of our generation."

However, be aware that it appears so far to have passed the academic world by. The intellectual analogue of huge seismic events in the worlds of mathematics, fundamental physics, philosophy (ontology, epistomology) and the interface between these disciplines (empiricism and the rest) are noticeable only by their absence. Misra's claims regarding cutting-edge subjects ranging from the Riemann Hypothesis and the origin of the universe should have made headlines even in the world's medium-brow press, and made Misra a fortune into the bargain; but nobody's paying attention. Appalling oversight, or just forbearance in the face of the self-deluded? you decide.
