What are time and space made of? Where does matter come from? And what exactly is reality? Theoretical physicist Carlo Rovelli has spent his whole life exploring these questions and pushing the boundaries of what we know. Here he explains how our image of the world has changed over the last few dozen centuries.

General Relativity and quantum mechanics, /gravity, space-time, are so beautifully described here. I haven’t come across a more complete (& easy to understand) elegant analysis of these complex concepts. I loved the analogy of the wave in an ocean being a system, (a combination of processes – not an object) as everything is, even people! Truly profound! The covariant reminded me of human symbiosis. Lastly I was thrilled to hear about ‘times’ thermo /heat transfer. So much here and so well done!

Would you listen to Skinwalker again? Why?

Enjoyed the female lead. Refreshing.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Skinwalker?

The descriptions of: adding to mass to become a bigger animal and leaving mass to become a smaller one. The native American references and background.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Didn't have time to listen all in one sitting. I gave it 5 stars because I would have been sorry to have missed it.
