Physics is the Segre family business, and Gino's enthusiasm for science is very natural and infectious. This book takes the reader on a surprising tour of the cosmos, starting within the human body and ending at the limits of the universe - using the concept of temperature as a guide.

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"
