About this book

We once had to abandon the idea of earth being at the centre of the universe. Now, we need to confront an even more profound possibility: the universe itself might just be one universe among many. "In Search of the Multiverse" takes us on an extraordinary journey, examining the most fundamental questions in science. What are the boundaries of our universe? Can there be different physical laws from the ones we know? Are there in fact other universes? Do we really live in a multiverse? This book is a search - the ultimate search - exploring the frontiers of reality.

Ideas that were once science fiction have now come to dominate modern physics. And, as John Gribbin shows, there is increasing evidence that there really is more to the universe than we can see. Gribbin guides us through the different competing theories (there is more than one multiverse!) revealing what they have in common and what we can come to expect. He gives a brilliant tour of the current state of cosmology. John Gribbin is our best, most accessible guide to the big questions of science. And there is no bigger question than our search for the multiverse.

Media reviews
Gribbin stands out for succinctness and readability ... combines expert knowledge with straight-forward, no-frills exposition Andrew Crumey, Scotland on Sunday Five hundred years ago it was heresy to suggest that our planet was not at the centre of the universe ... Now John Gribbin postulates something that is equally controversial for our times - perhaps our universe is not the only one in existence Good Book Guide There are parallel universes where you're the editor of Focus and where Buddy Holly is planning a comeback tour ... Gribbin unpicks the science of parallel universes ... and, in this universe at least, it's brilliant BBC Focus magazine
