Product description

Review

Review from previous edition Lucid and provocative, it is a very polite corrective to both superstitions of the layman and the triumphalism of the experts. (New Statesman)

A lucid tour. (Simon Mitton, THES)

Stannard takes readers on a tour of some of the deepest questions facing science. (The Independent)
