Description

Knowledge is power? A landmark new series from a prize-winning scientist and communicator

In this major trilogy, Sean Carroll opens up the world of physics and shows that you don’t necessarily need a science degree to gain a deeper insight into the workings of the universe.

Starting with the ideas that revolutionised our view of nature, Space, Time and Motion poses deep questions about the cosmos, guiding us through classical physics from Euclid and Galileo to Newton and Einstein. Carroll investigates how a twin could be seven years older than her brother, and demonstrates why it’s easier than you might think for a drifting astronaut to get back to the safety of the space station. 

These are the laws of physics as you’ve never understood them before.
