From Brian Greene one of the worlds leading physicists and author of the Pulitzer Prize finalist The Elegant Universe comes a grand tour of the universe that makes us look at reality in a completely different way Space and time form the very fabric of the cosmos Yet they remain among the most mysterious of concepts Is space an entity Why does time have a direction Could the universe exist without space and time Can we travel to the past Greene has set himself a daunting task to explain non intuitive mathematical concepts like String Theory the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle and Inflationary Cosmology with analogies drawn from common experience From Newtons unchanging realm in which space and time are absolute to Einsteins fluid conception of spacetime to quantum mechanics entangled arena where vastly distant objects can instantaneously coordinate their behavior Greene takes us all regardless of our scientific backgrounds on an irresistible and revelatory journey to the new layers of reality that modern physics has discovered lying just beneath the surface of our everyday world
