Description

Explore humanity's search for meaning in an evolving universe with the world-renowned physicist and best-selling author of The Elegant Universe.

Brian Greene is one of the world’s most influential scientists. The Director of Columbia University's Center for Theoretical Physics, a best-selling author, and the host of the Emmy Award-winning NOVA miniseries, he was won millions of readers—and Twitter followers—with his mind-expanding, yet always accessible, explorations of humanity’s place in the universe. Until the End of Time is his latest, eagerly anticipated journey through the cosmos. Through a series of nested stories that explain distinct but interwoven layers of reality—from consciousness to black holes—Greene provides us with a clearer sense of how we came to be, a finer picture of where we are now, and a firmer understanding of where we are headed. As he offers a delightful grand tour of the universe from beginning to end, you’ll come to appreciate our fleeting but utterly exquisite moment in the cosmos.
