The Quantum Universe: Everything That Can Happen Does Happen, by Brian Cox and Jeff Forshaw has reached the Economist Book of the Year list. The book breaks all the rules of popular science-writing, by two of Britain’s best known physicists.
In the year that popular physics has enjoyed a new-found regard, Cox’s book is a brave attempt to inject mathematics into the subject.
Cox, corporate speaker and particle physicist, is a well-known presenter of two BBC television series that have attracted millions of viewers (a third series will be aired next year) and as a bestselling author.
