"It would be hard to imagine a better guide to this difficult subject."--Scientific American
In Three Roads to Quantum Gravity, Lee Smolin provides an accessible overview of the attempts to build a final "theory of everything." He explains in simple terms what scientists are talking about when they say the world is made from exotic entities such as loops, strings, and black holes and tells the fascinating stories behind these discoveries: the rivalries, epiphanies, and intrigues he witnessed firsthand.

"Provocative, original, and unsettling." --New York Review of Books

"An excellent writer, a creative thinker."--Nature

"This is real twenty-first century science."--Allen Lane, Independent "A mix of science, philosophy, and science fiction, [this] is at once entertaining, thought-provoking, fabulously ambitious, and fabulously speculative."--New York Times "[Smolin] argues lucidly and effectively that physicists should pause to reevaluate exactly what they mean when they use the words 'space' and 'time.' This is a deeply philosophical work."--New York Times Books Review "Lee [Smolin] is a brilliant, original thinker."--Roger Penrose
