Product description


"Seth Lloyd is an authoritative and often funny guide to this head-bending stuff...startlingly novel" (Stephen Poole Guardian)

"Lloyd does an excellent job of explaining all this in clear, accessible language... I urge you to buy the book" (John Gribbin Independent)

"Visionary and fun" (New York Times)

"His excellent book explains the science in terms as simple as one could hope for" (Andrew Crumey Scotland on Sunday)

"Lloyd thinks he has found a new way to explain one of the most basic questions in science: Why is the world so complex?... Fascinating and profoundly comforting... Seth Lloyd certainly gives his readers a lot of bang for their buck" (The New York Times Book Review)

Book Description

A hugely important book about one of the hottest topics in science - the extent to which the universe functions as a giant computer.
