Recensioner i media

Adhemar Bultheel, European Mathmatical Society An extraordinary masterpiece.

Sunday Times Perhaps the most engaging and creative tour of modern physics that has ever been written

Physics Today A superb book... provocative and absorbing

New York Time Book Review A bold, brilliant, groundbreaking work... When Mr Penrose talks, scientists listen

Nature . . One cannot imagine a more revealing self-portrait than this enchanting, tantalising book... Roger Penrose reveals himself as an eloquent protagonist, not only of the wonders of mathematics, but also of the uniqueness of people.

Financial Times I fail to see how anybody can remain unmoved by the book's central theme, which concerns the nature of human beings... His style is relaxed and entertaining, There are nuggets on almost every page.
