In this book, we have hand-picked the most sophisticated, unanticipated, absorbing (if not at times crackpot!), original and musing book reviews of "The Fabric of Reality: The Science of Parallel Universes--and Its Implications." Don't say we didn't warn you: these reviews are known to shock with their unconventionality or intimacy. Some may be startled by their biting sincerity; others may be spellbound by their unbridled flights of fantasy. Don't buy this book if: 1. You don't have nerves of steel. 2. You expect to get pregnant in the next five minutes. 3. You've heard it all.

Wir sind nicht allein! - Brian Greene über unsere Doppelgänger im All In seinem neuen Buch macht sich Physiker und Bestsellerautor Brian Greene auf die Suche nach der »verborgenen Wirklichkeit« im Universum. Er zeigt, warum vieles dafür spricht, dass wir in den Weiten des Kosmos nicht allein sind, und er beschreibt, welchen Parallelwelten die Astrophysiker auf der Spur sind. Wie keinem Zweiten gelingt es ihm dabei, physikalische Spitzenforschung mit hohem Unterhaltungswert zu verbinden.

Ronald Reagan’s most-quoted living author - George Gilder - is back with an all-new paradigm-shifting theory of capitalism that will upturn conventional wisdom, just when our economy desperately needs a new direction. America’s struggling economy needs a better philosophy than the college student's lament: "I can't be out of money, I still have checks in my checkbook!" We’ve tried a government spending spree, and we’ve learned it doesn’t work. Now is the time to rededicate our country to the pursuit of free market capitalism, before we’re buried under a mound of debt and unfunded entitlements. But how do we navigate between government spending that's too big to sustain and financial institutions that are "too big to fail?" In Knowledge and Power, George Gilder proposes a bold new theory on how capitalism produces wealth and how our economy can regain its vitality and its growth. Gilder breaks away from the supply-side model of economics to present a new economic paradigm: the epic conflict between the knowledge of entrepreneurs on one side, and the blunt power of government on the other. The knowledge of entrepreneurs, and their freedom to share and use that knowledge, are the sparks that light up the economy and set its gears in motion. The power of government to regulate, stifle, manipulate, subsidize or suppress knowledge and ideas is the inertia that slows those gears down, or keeps them from turning at all. One of the twentieth century’s defining economic minds has returned with a new philosophy to carry us into the twenty-first. Knowledge and Power is a must-read for fiscal conservatives, business owners, CEOs, investors, and anyone interested in propelling America’s economy to future success.

The bestselling author of The Elegant Universe and The Fabric of the Cosmos tackles perhaps the most mind-bending question in modern physics and cosmology: Is our universe the only universe? There was a time when "universe" meant all there is. Everything. Yet, a number of theories are converging on the possibility that our universe may be but one among many parallel universes populating a vast multiverse. Here, Briane Greene, one of our foremost physicists and science writers, takes us on a breathtaking journey to a multiverse comprising an endless series of big bangs, a multiverse with duplicates of every one of us, a multiverse populated by vast sheets of spacetime, a multiverse in which all we consider real are holographic illusions, and even a multiverse made purely of math--and reveals the reality hidden within each. Using his trademark wit and precision, Greene presents a thrilling survey of cutting-edge physics and confronts the inevitable question: How can fundamental science progress if great swaths of reality lie beyond our reach? The Hidden Reality is a remarkable adventure through a world more vast and strange than anything we could have imagined.

»Autobiographien von Popmusikern sind eigentlich überflüssig. Nur die von Mark Oliver Everett von den Eels nicht.« SZ Wenn jemand mit Fug und Recht behaupten kann, dass die Musik sein Leben gerettet hat, dann ist es der Eels-Frontmann Mark Oliver Everett. Er ist ein Davongekommener. Seine Kindheit und Jugend in Virginia sind überschattet von Ereignissen, die andere zerbrechen lassen. Die Eltern sterben früh, seine Schwester nimmt sich das Leben. Ein Schicksalsschlag folgt dem anderen. Everett überlebt, indem er Musik macht, indem er von seinem Verlust, von seiner Trauer singt. »Novocaine for the Soul«, Schmerzmittel für die Seele, dieser Song wird sein Durchbruch. Mit seiner Band Eels hat er sich inzwischen eine große Fangemeinde erobert, füllt mühelos die Konzerthallen und zieht das Publikum in seinen Bann.Mark Oliver Everett schreibt seine Autobiographie, als würde er einem Freund sein Leben erzählen: ohne jedes Pathos, aber mit einer Intensität, die einen nicht mehr loslässt – und mit einer guten Portion Humor. »Eine ergreifende Autobiographie« (Der Stern) »Er erzählt wunderbar unlarmoyant, in einem Konversationsstil, der an J.D. Salinger erinnert.« (Zeit online)
