'Here, on the edge of what we know, in contact with the ocean of the unknown, shines the mystery and the beauty of the world. And it's breathtaking' These seven short, simple lessons guide us through the scientific revolution that shook physics in the twentieth century and still continues to shake us today. Theoretical physicist Carlo Rovelli, a founder of the loop quantum gravity theory. explains Einstein's theory of general relativity, quantum mechanics, black holes, the complex architecture of the universe, elementary particles, gravity, and the nature of the mind. In under eighty pages, readers will understand the most transformative scientific discoveries of the twentieth century and what they mean for us.… (mere)

A theoretical physicist opens a window on to the great questions of the universe with this 96-page overview of modern physics. Rovelli’s keen insight and striking metaphors make this the best introduction to subjects including relativity, quantum mechanics, cosmology, elementary particles and entropy outside of a course in advanced physics.

As the title says, this book is very brief - the first 6 lessons can be read in about 5 minutes each. They do a good job of explaining basic concepts of modern physics, especially quantum mechanics. But more than that, they do a good job of explaining why someone would care about physics - they convey the wonder and joy of exploring the basic mysteries of how the world works. The final essay is a deep exploration of what it means to be a human existing in a world where physics exists.

I didn't necessarily walk away from this book with a deeper understanding of physics than I had before (as someone who reads a lot of science fiction and general nerdy stuff), but I did enjoy reading it nonetheless - Rovelli's writing is very good, and there's a lot of food for thought here. ( )

"Seven Brief Lessons on Physics" is, as hinted at by the title, a VERY BRIEF review of several areas of scientific discoveries. Carlo Rovelli's descriptions are clear, but the coverage of each topic is short enough to allow a non-technical reader engaged, but only provides a somewhat superficial introduction to each topic. Topics covered include general relativity, quantum mechanics, atomic particles, the nature of gravity, black holes, and the nature of the universe. It probably serves as a nice review for people who may have been introduced to these topics in the past, but are looking for an update or a refresher. ( )

Beautiful language, fantastic work of Rovelli and on the part of the translators. ( )

Brief indeed, but an outstanding basal physics primer. ( )
