Review:

"An exhilarating journey that cuts across a vast terrain of conceptual landmarks: from physics to metaphysics, mathematics to philosophy, and from mythology to theology... Without a doubt an important, engaging and highly literate book" ( New Scientist)

"Bridges the gab between the research frontiers of theoretical physics and the aspirations of man to understand what is going on" ( Times Literary Supplement)

"Engaging and accessible" ( Daily Telegraph)

" Theories of Everything is a beautifully written and thoughtful attempt to make sense of this difficult area of enquiry" ( Nature)

"What an elegant exposition lies here: not for everyone, to be sure, but for those familiar with astronomer Barrow's rich background in mathematics and in the history and philosophy of science, a treasure of learning and insight" ( Kirkus Reviews)
