About the Author

John Gribbin gained a PhD from the Institute of Astronomy in Cambridge (then under the leadership of Fred Hoyle) before working as a science journalist for Nature and later New Scientist. He is the author of a number of bestselling popular science books, including In Search of Schr dinger's Cat, In Search of the Multiverse, Science- A History and The Universe- A Biography. He is a Visiting Fellow at the University of Sussex and in 2000 was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature.

John Gribbin is one of today's greatest writers of popular science and the author of bestselling books including In Search of Schrodinger's Cat, Stardust, Science- A History, Deep Simplicity and The Fellowship. He is famous to his many fans for making complex ideas simple, and says that his aim in his writing - much of it done with his wife Mary Gribbin - is to share his sense of wonder at the strangeness of the universe with his readers. John Gribbin trained as an astrophysicist at Cambridge University and is currently Visiting Fellow in Astronomy at the University of Sussex. He also enjoys working on science-fiction stories in his spare time, and does most of his writing in a shed in his back garden.

Reviews

"Immensely readable... John Gribbin deftly traverses the peek-a-boo world of electrons and discombobulating possibilities of parallel universes to shed some much-needed light on the imminent technological revolution." * The Times *
"With a readable history of [quantum] theory, and of computers, Gribbin has penned a fascinating, pleasantly mind-boggling and probably quite essential book for non-eggheads." * Weekend Sport *
