An exploration of mankind's fascination with worlds beyond our own-by the bestselling author of The Physics of Star Trek

Lawrence Krauss -an international leader in physics and cosmology-examines our long and ardent romance with parallel universes, veiled dimensions, and regions of being that may extend tantalizingly beyond the limits of our perception. Krauss examines popular culture's current embrace (and frequent misunderstanding) of such topics as black holes, life in other dimensions, strings, and some of the more extraordinary new theories that propose the existence of vast extra dimensions alongside our own. BACKCOVER: "An astonishing and brilliantly written work of popular science."
-Science a GoGo

"A brilliant, thrilling book . . . You'll have so much fun reading that you'll hardly notice you're getting a primer on contemporary physics and cosmology."
-Walter Isaacson, author of Benjamin Franklin: An American Life
Lawrence M. Krauss is one of today’s leading theoretical physicists. He has won numerous awards for his research, his writing, and his efforts to popularize science. The author of seven books, he is a frequent contributor to NPR and many publications.
