Reality Is Not What It Seems Carlo Rovelli Universal Brian Cox & Jeff Forshaw Einstein's Greatest Mistake David Bodanis HB $39.99 Scientist Carlo Rovelli has spent his life exploring the big questions and pushing the boundaries of what we know. Here he explains how our image of the world has changed throughout centuries. From Aristotle to Albert Einstein, Michael Faraday to the Higgs boson, he takes us on a wondrous journey to show us that beyond our ever-changing idea of reality is a whole new world that has yet to be discovered. HB $49.99 We dare to imagine a time before the Big Bang, when the entire Universe was compressed into a space smaller than an atom. And now, as Brian Cox and Jeff Forshaw show, we can do more than imagine: we can understand. Universal takes us on an epic journey of scientific exploration and, in doing so, reveals how we can all understand some of the most fundamental questions about our Earth, Sun, Solar System and the starfilled galaxies beyond. PB $35.00 Widely considered the greatest genius of all time, Albert Einstein revolutionised our understanding of the cosmos. Yet in the final decades of his life he was also ignored by most working scientists. David Bodanis traces the arc of Einstein's intellectual development across his professional and personal life, showing how Einstein's confidence in his own powers of intuition proved to be both his greatest strength and his ultimate undoing. The Dragon Behind the Glass Emily Voigt The Hidden Life of Trees Peter Wohlleben Homo Deus Yuval Noah Harari PB $32.99 A riveting journey into the bizarre world of the Asian arowana or “dragon fish”—the world’s most expensive aquarium fish—reveals a surprising history with profound implications for the future of wild animals and human beings alike. An elegant exploration of the human conquest of nature, The Dragon Behind the Glass revels in the sheer wonder of life’s diversity and lays bare our deepest desire—to hold onto what is wild. PB $29.99 Peter Wohlleben draws on groundbreaking scientific discoveries to reveal the ways in which trees are like human families: tree parents live togethe ]Z\[[[][X]H][K\B]Y[]H\HX[][\XX\و[\[[™[\ˈ]Z\]ٛ[[\[[وH[Y[B\^YHوY\XY\[]\HXH]H[[BH[YH^HYZ[ K [[]\H\[[]]܂و\Y[^[Z[\\]\H]\Y[X\[وY[K\ܞK[H[]\H\\[H[]Y[[]\^ܙ\BڙXX[\[YX\\][\HH[KY\[\x%Hݙ\Z[X]ܙX][˜\YXX[YK]\H[[Y[[]Y\[ۜΈ\HHH\O[[HX\Y[BܛH\ۈ\X]B\‚
