Publisher's Summary

An eye-opening celebration of the marvels of space, time, the cosmos, and more.  

How to Love the Universe is a new kind of science writing by an author truly enamored of the world around him. In 10 short chapters of lyrical prose - each one an ode to a breathtaking realm of discovery - Stefan Klein uses everyday objects and events as a springboard to meditate on the beauty of the underlying science.  

Klein sees in a single rose the sublime interdependence of all life; a day of stormy weather points to the world's unpredictability; a marble conjures the birth of the cosmos. As he contemplates the deepest mysteries - the nature of reality, dark matter, humanity's place among the galaxies, and more - Klein encourages us to fall in love with the universe the way scientists do: with a grasp of the key ideas and theories of 21st-century physics that bring to life the wonders of, really, everything.  

You won't look at a rose - or at our world - the same way again.
