Following the hugely successful The Science Book and The Math Book comes a richly illustrated chronology of physics, containing 250 short entries. In addition to exploring such engaging topics as dark energy, parallel universes, the Doppler effect, the God particle, and Maxwell's demon, the book's timeline extends back billions of years to the hypothetical Big Bang and forward trillions of years to a time of “quantum resurrection.”
