The Hidden Reality

Parallel Universes and the Deep Laws of the Cosmos

  • Brian Greene



The newest discoveries about multiverses from the best writer in the field

There was a time when 'universe' meant all there is. Everything. Yet, as Brian Greene's extraordinary book shows, ours may be just one universe among many, like endless reflections in a mirror. He takes us on a captivating exploration of parallel worlds - from a multiverse where an infinite number of your doppelgängers are reading this sentence, to vast oceans of bubble universes and even multiverses made of mathematics - showing just how much of reality's true nature may be hidden within them.

Praise for The Hidden Reality

Brian Greene's book The Hidden Reality is a tour de force of one of the most controversial areas of modern science - the possibility that there are multiple universes... Greene's ability as a populariser has matured with each new publication and this latest offering is his best yet

Alastair Gunn, Sky at Night

Exciting and rewarding ... captures and engages the imagination ... Greene has a gift for elucidating big ideas

New York Times

If extraterrestrials landed tomorrow and demanded to know what the human mind is capable of accomplishing, we could do worse than to hand them a copy of this book

New York Times Book Review

The book serves well as an introduction to the multiverse and will open up many people's eyes

John Gribbin

Every chapter opens level after level of previously unimaginable, mind-expanding realities
