From the Publisher:

The Nobel Prize-winner's story of finding the connections between the basic laws of physics and the diversity of the natural world links such disparate subjects as chimpanzee behavior, avalanche mechanics, superstring theory, and Gilbert and Sullivan.

"A stimulating, provocative, and uncommon cut across compartments of human knowledge that are usually hermetically sealed. It is always a pleasure to see a first-class mind grappling with the greatest mysteries, and at the same time resolutely resisting mysticism." --Carl Sagan

About the Author:
