Media reviews
'Reports from the cutting edge, presented with eloquence and style . it gives the dizzying sense that science is poised on the brink of a new world of discovery - a world stranger and still more beautiful than anything imagined yet' - F.T. ' Every once in a while a physicist, with a gift for writing and an empathy for the non- scientific mind, reports back like an anthropologist from Mars. Gell- Mann has written such a book' - SPECTATOR
