Farewell to Reality: How Modern Physics Has Betrayed the Search for Scientific Truth

From acclaimed technological know-how writer Jim Baggot, a pointed critique of contemporary theoretical physics.

In this gorgeous new quantity, Jim Baggott argues that there's no observational or experimental facts for plenty of of the information of recent theoretical physics: super-symmetric debris, tremendous strings, the multiverse, the holographic precept, or the anthropic cosmological precept. those theories will not be basically unfaithful; they aren't even technological know-how.

They are fairy-tale physics: fantastical, weird and wonderful and infrequently outrageous, maybe even confidence-trickery. This e-book presents a much-needed antidote. proficient, finished, and balanced, it deals lay readers the newest principles concerning the nature of actual fact whereas sincerely distinguishing among truth and myth.
