Review quote

"'Segre elegantly gives us essential physics nicely laced with anecdote and graced with literary references that tie physics to the wider culture' The Times 'This book develops as rapidly as the universe itself into a study of the big questions of science, using temperature as the path through it all. Mind-expanding reading' Observer; 'Refreshing and rewarding, like listening to a graceful conversation' The New York Times; 'One of the most deft and accessible physics books I've read in a long while...Superb' LA Times"show more
