9780141036113: In Search of the Multiverse

John Gribbin's In Search of the Multiverse takes us on an extraordinary journey through the most fundamental questions in science, exploring the frontiers of reality itself.

What are the boundaries of our universe? Could there be other worlds - do we actually live in a multiverse? Will we meet another 'us' in a different reality? Or are alternative worlds parallel but separate?

John Gribbin guides us through the different theories about multiverses, along the way explaining the every latest thinking about gravity, about time and multiple dimensions, about quantum theory, about matter itself - and even the mind-bending possibility that one day we may be creating universes ourselves.

John Gribbin is the best guide to the big questions of science. And there is no bigger question than our search for the multiverse.

Review:

Gribbin stands out for succinctness and readability ... combines expert knowledge with straight-forward, no-frills exposition ( Andrew Crumey, Scotland on Sunday)

Five hundred years ago it was heresy to suggest that our planet was not at the centre of the universe ... Now John Gribbin postulates something that is equally controversial for our times - perhaps our universe is not the only one in existence ( Good Book Guide)

There are parallel universes where you're the editor of Focus and where Buddy Holly is planning a comeback tour . . . Gribbin unpicks the science of parallel universes . . . and, in this universe at least, it's brilliant ( BBC Focus magazine)
