In this grand poetic vision of the universe, Lawrence Krauss tells the dramatic story of the discovery of the hidden world that underlies realityâand our place within it.
Reality is not what you think or senseâitâs weird, wild, and counterintuitive, and its inner workings seem at least as implausible as the idea that something can come from nothing.
With his trademark wit and accessible style, Krauss leads us to realms so small that they are invisible to microscopes, to the birth and rebirth of light, and into the natural forces that govern our existence. His unique blend of rigorous research and engaging storytelling invites us into the lives and minds of remarkable scientists who have helped unravel the unexpected fabric of reality with reasoning rather than superstition and dogma, and to explain how everything we seeâand canât seeâcame about. A passionate advocate for reason, Krauss gives the rationale for the seemingly irrationalâand the mysteries and apparent contradictions of quantum physics, and explores what that means for our lives here on Earthâand beyond.
At its core, The Greatest Story Ever ToldâSo Far is about the best of what it means to be humanâan epic history of our ultimately purposeless universe that addresses the question, âWhy are we here?â
