's review

really liked it

A fact shared by Mathematicians and Physicist but little understood by others is that Maths is beautiful. Carlo Rovelli has come closer than anyone else to showing that Maths isn't just about equations that no-one understand unless you have a degree in it, but truly beautiful. He even compares Einstein's General Theory of Relativity to a late String Quartet by Beethoven. This is a man who gets it and wants to demonstrate it to others.

Which I think he does, with different, straightforward, but creatively different descriptions of the above mentioned, and introduction to Statistical Physics and more.

Straightforward, simple and beautiful.
