Publisher's Summary

From the best-selling author of Seven Brief Lessons on Physics comes a new audiobook about the mind-bending nature of the universe.
Penguin presents the unabridged downloadable audiobook edition of Reality Is Not What It Seems by Carlo Rovelli, read by Roy McMillan.
What are time and space made of? Where does matter come from? And what exactly is reality?
Scientist Carlo Rovelli has spent his whole life exploring these questions and pushing the boundaries of what we know. Here he explains how our image of the world has changed throughout centuries. From Aristotle to Albert Einstein, Michael Faraday to the Higgs boson, he takes us on a wondrous journey to show us that beyond our ever-changing idea of reality is a whole new world that has yet to be discovered.

Rovelli is a master

This and Seven Brief Lessons are two of my favorite books of the year. Rovelli communicates advanced physics clearly, with imagination, and with such a great sense of humanity and the arts. I rarely listen to books twice, but these are the exceptions.
