Paradox Book Review

By October 30, 2012

Follow me on:

Paradox by Jim Al-KhaliliI've just finished a charming new book, Paradox: The Nine Greatest Enigmas in Physics by Iraqi-born British physicist Jim Al-Khalili. As the name suggests, the book explores a series of scientific paradoxes and uses them as the springboard for a deeper analysis of fundamental scientific concepts, ranging from time travel (the classic "grandfather paradox") to the quantum mysteries at the core of the quantum Zeno effect. For a complete list of the scientific paradoxes tackled within the book, I direct you toward our review of Paradox.
