Quantum physics is not mystifying. The implications are mind-bending, and not yet fully understood, but this revolutionary theory is truly illuminating. It stands as the best explanation of the fundamental nature of our world. An authoritative and beautifully written account of the quest to understand quantum theory and the origin of space and time. Professor Brian Cox Spanning the history of quantum discoveries, from Einstein and Bohr to the present day, Something Deeply Hidden is the essential guide to the most intriguing subject in science. Acclaimed physicist and writer Sean Carroll debunks the myths, resurrects and reinstates the Many-Worlds interpretation, and presents a new path towards solving the apparent conflict between quantum mechanics and Einsteins theory of general relativity. In doing so, he fills a gap in the science that has existed for almost a century. A magisterial tour, Something Deeply Hidden encompasses the cosmological and everyday implications of quantum reality and multiple universes. And finally it all makes sense. ***** 'Carroll takes us by the hand and with a benign smile and a chatty style, leads us to a place where at every instant an almost infinite number of copies of you are splitting off to live alternative lives a wild conceptual ride.' The Sunday Times, BOOKS OF THE YEAR 'Like all great writers, Carroll has the remarkable ability of putting the reader utterly at ease with his lucid and addictive prose. He leads you so gently and comfortably into his quantum world that you quickly forget you are being given access to the most profound ideas about the nature of reality.' Jim Al-Khalili 'Sean Carrolls immensely enjoyable Something Deeply Hidden brings readers face-to-face with the fundamental quantum weirdness of the universe or should I say universes? And by the end, you may catch yourself finding quantum weirdness not all that weird.' Jordan Ellenberg

Carroll takes us by the hand and with a benign smile and a chatty style, leads us to a place whereat every instant an almost infinite number of copies of you are splitting off to live alternative lives a wild conceptual ride. -- Sunday Times, BOOKS OF THE YEAR Tackling huge questions, myths and conundrums about our Universe is no easy task, but Carroll does so elegantly. -- BBC Science Focus 'An authoritative and beautifully written account of the quest to understand quantum theory and the origin of space and time. Sean Carroll is a rare combination of excellent science writer and excellent research scientist. His writing exhibits a clarity of thought that is only available through a deep understanding of the subject. When the book becomes speculative, as it must because it deals with deep and as yet unsolved questions, we know we are in good hands.' * Brian Cox - Broadcaster and Professor of Particle Physics at the University of Manchester * 'Something Deeply Hidden is Carrolls ambitious and engaging foray into what quantum mechanics really means and what it tells us about physical reality.' -- Science Magazine 'As a smart and intensely readable undergraduate class in the history of quantum theory and the nature of quantum mechanics, Something Deeply Hidden could scarcely be improved.' -- Open Letters Monthly * Steve Donoghue * 'Readers in this universe (and others?) will relish the opportunity to explore the frontiers of science in the company of titans.' -- Booklist 'Fans of popular science authors such as Neil deGrasse Tyson and John Gribbin will find great joy while exploring these groundbreaking concepts.' -- Library Journal 'Solid arguments and engaging historical backdrop will captivate science-minded readers everywhere.' -- Scientific Inquirer 'Carroll argues with a healthy restlessness that makes his book more interesting than so many others in the quantum physics genre.' -- Forbes 'If you want to know why some people take [the Everett] approach seriously and what you can do with it, then Carrolls latest is one of the best popular books on the market.' -- Physics Today 'Be prepared to deal with some equations and to have your mind blown.' -- Geek Wire 'By far the most articulate and cogent defence of the Many-Worlds view in book-length depth with a close connection to the latest ongoing research.' -- Science News 'Enlightening and refreshingly bold.' -- Scientific American 'What makes Carrolls new project so worthwhile, though, is that while he is most certainly choosing sides in the debate, he offers us a cogent, clear and compelling guide to the subject while letting his passion for the scientific questions shine through every page.' -- NPR Like all great writers, Carroll has the remarkable ability of putting the reader utterly at ease with his lucid and addictive prose. He leads you so gently and comfortably into his quantum world that you quickly forget you are being given access to the most profound ideas about the nature of reality. -- Jim Al-Khalili, author of <i>Quantum Mechanics (A Ladybird Expert Book)</i> A thrilling tour through what is perhaps humankinds greatest intellectual achievement quantum mechanics. With bold clarity, Carroll deftly unmasks quantum weirdness to reveal a strange but utterly wondrous reality. -- Brian Greene, author of <i>The Elegant Universe</i> Sean Carrolls immensely enjoyable Something Deeply Hidden brings readers face-to-face with the fundamental quantum weirdness of the universe or should I say universes? And by the end, you may catch yourself finding quantum weirdness not all that weird. -- Jordan Ellenberg, author of <i>How Not to Be Wrong</i> Carroll gives us a front-row seat to the development of a new vision of physics: one that connects our every
