TO EXPLAIN THE WORLD by Steven Weinberg

TO EXPLAIN THE WORLD by Nobel Laureate Steven Weinberg received rave reviews in the New York Times Book Review, which says that Weinberg “tells a rich, meaningful tale about the emergence of science, and evokes a sense of ‘how difficult was the discovery of modern science, how far from obvious are its practices and standards’.” The book was also reviewed by John Farrell on Forbes.com who calls it “entertaining”

and says that the author is not “shy about offering his personal assessment of many icons in the history of science and philosophy…I have to confess it made me laugh out loud.” The author also recently wrote a piece for the Guardian listing the “13 best science books for the general reader. Harper published the book February 17, 2015.
