Book Description:

Fantastic Realities is about particle physics by one of its major players. It is an exciting read that we can learn much from.

About the Author:

Frank Wilczek has received many prizes for his work in physics, including the Nobel Prize of 2004 for work he did as a graduate student at Princeton University, when he was only 21 years old. He is known, among other things, for the discovery of asymptotic freedom, the development of quantum chromodynamics, axions, and the discovery and exploitation of new forms of quantum statistics (anyons).

Frank is also known for his ability to communicate successfully with a wide range of audiences. Much in demand for public lectures, he has been anthologized in the Norton Anthology of Light Verse and twice in Best American Science Writing (2003, 2005). Together with his wife Betsy Devine, he wrote a beautiful book, Longing for the Harmonies.

Frank is currently the Herman Feshbach professor of physics at MIT. Betsy Devine, who blogs at "Funny Ha-Ha or Funny Peculiar", rejoices at being the fourth "Betsy" in Google.
