Product description


"Brian Greene has a gift for elucidating big ideas. . . Captures and engages the imagination. . . . It's exciting and rewarding to read him." --The New York Times

"A wonderful way to coax your brain into a host of strange and unfamiliar domains." --The Boston Globe

"Exciting physics, wrapped up in effortless prose. . . . Greene has done it again." --New Scientist

"If extraterrestrials landed tomorrow and demanded to know what the human mind is capable of accomplishing, we could do worse than to hand them a copy of this book." --The New York Times Book Review

"The multiverse is an idea whose time has come. . . . The book serves well as an introduction . . . and will open up many people's eyes." --The Wall Street Journal

"Greene takes us down the rabbit hole yet again, this time setting a course for the terra incognita of parallel universes, hidden worlds, alternate realities, holographic projections, and multiverse simulations. Greene likes to drop you into the middle of the action first and then explain the backstory, but he has an elegant knack for anticipating questions and immediately dealing with any confusion or objections." --The Daily Beast

"An accessible and surprisingly witty handbook to parallel universes.... Greene is immensely gifted at finding apt and colorful everyday analogies for the arcane byways of theoretical physics." --The Toronto Star

"Mind-stretching. . . . [The Hidden Reality is] Greene's impassioned argument 'for the capacity of mathematics to reveal hidden truths about the workings of the world.'" --The New Yorker

"Like [Stephen] Hawking and [Roger] Penrose before him, [Greene] is an author who writes with the confidence and authority of one who . . . has seen the promised land of cosmic truth." --Bookforum

"If you like your science explained rather than asserted, if you like your science writers articulate and intelligible, if you like popular science to make sense, even as it probes the heart of difficult theory, you are going to love The Hidden Reality and its author, Brian Greene." --New York Journal of Books

"Greene's forte is his amazing ability to give clear, everyday examples to illustrate complicated physical theories." --The Globe and Mail

"Ambitious. . . . Entertaining and well-written. . . . Greene is a keen interpreter." --The Christian Science Monitor

"A lucid, intriguing, and triumphantly understandable state-of-the-art look at the universe." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"With a slew of clever analogies, Greene communicates with uncommon clarity, intuition, and honesty." --The Oxonian Review

"Greene's success at explaining the patently inexplicable lies in the way he delightfully melds the utterly bizarre and the utterly familiar." --Providence Journal

"Exotic cosmic terrain through which Greene provides expert guidance." --The Oregonian

"Mind-blowing." --The Sunday Times (London)

"Highly rewarding." --Scotland on Sunday

"[Greene] has something fresh and insightful to say about pretty much everything"

"Vast, energetic and complex." --The Easthampton Star

"The best guide available, in this universe at least."--Science News

"Greene's greatest achievement is that even as you grapple with these allusive concepts, you start falling in love with these mysteries." --The Express Tribune
