About This Book

" Science has a battle for hearts and minds on its hands…. How good it feels to have Lisa Randall' s unusual blend of top flight science, clarity, and charm on our side. " — Richard Dawkins " Dazzling ideas…. Read this book today to understand the science of tomorrow. " — Steven Pinker The bestselling author of Warped Passages, one of Time magazine' s " 100 Most Influential People in the World, " and one of Esquire' s " 75 Most Influential People of the 21st Century, "   Lisa Randall gives us an exhilarating overview of the latest ideas in physics and offers a rousing defense of the role of science in our lives. Featuring fascinating insights into our scientific future born from the author' s provocative conversations with Nate Silver, David Chang, and Scott Derrickson, Knocking on Heaven' s Door is eminently readable, one of the most important popular science books of this or any year. It is a necessary volume for all who admire the work of Stephen Hawking, Michio Kaku, Brian Greene, Simon Singh, and Carl Sagan; for anyone curious about the workings and aims of the Large Hadron Collider, the biggest and most expensive machine ever built by mankind; for those who firmly believe in the importance of science and rational thought; and for anyone interested in how the Universe began… and how it might ultimately end.
