For fans of Sean Carroll, Brian Greene, Katie Mack, and anyone who wants to know what theoretical physicists actually do.
This Way to the Universe is a celebration of the astounding, ongoing scientific investigations that have revealed the nature of reality at its smallest, at its largest, and at the scale of our daily lives. The enigmas that Professor Michael Dine discusses are like landmarks on a fantastic journey to the edge of the universe.
Asked where to find out about the big bang, dark matter, the Higgs boson particle - the long cutting edge of physics right now - Dine had no single book he could recommend. This is his accessible, authoritative, and up-to-date answer. Comprehensible to anyone with a high-school-level education, with almost no equations, there is no better author to take you on this amazing odyssey.
Dine is widely recognized as having made profound contributions to our understanding of matter, time, the big bang, and even what might have come before it. This Way to the Universe touches on many emotional, critical points in his extraordinary career while presenting mind-bending physics like his answer to the dark matter and dark energy mysteries as well as the ideas that explain why our universe consists of something rather than nothing. People assume string theory can never be tested, but Dine intrepidly explores exactly how the theory might be tested experimentally, as well as the pitfalls of falling in love with math. This book reflects a lifetime pursuing the deepest mysteries of reality, by one of the most humble and warmly engaging voices you will ever hear.
“This Way to the Universe is an accessible and impressively complete account of the history and current state of research in theoretical physics. Dine’s infectious enthusiasm about the quest for nature’s underlying truths is obvious on every page. Fellow science enthusiasts will enjoy this book and its unusual peek into the journey of a theoretical physicist.”—Physics Today
“A comprehensive and uncompromising tour de force of literally all of fundamental physics.”—BBC Sky At Night Magazine
“Renowned physicist Michael Dine takes us from the innards of the atom to the depths of black holes in this readable…celebration of science’s most mind-bending discipline. The text is conversational and full of delightful asides.”—Scientific American
