Publisher's Comments

Explains the physics behind each of the four ideas - the conservation of energy, the second law of thermodynamics, the theory of relativity, quantum mechanics - and deftly untangles for lay readers such knotty concepts as entropy, the relativity of time, and the Heisenberg uncertainty principle.
