Publisher's Summary

You never knew that theoretical physics could be so simple! In this exciting and significant audiobook, Andrew Thomas reveals how all unifications in physics have been based on incredibly simple ideas.
Using a logical approach, Thomas explains how the great 20th-century theories of relativity and quantum mechanics share a common base and how they can be linked using an idea so simple that anyone can understand it. An idea that is so simple it has been hidden in plain sight.

Relative to other similar books, not a winner

Relative to other similar books I was left absolutely nonplussed! (See what I did there?).

I'm not an astrophysicist or a particle physicist so I cannot credibly argue about the underlying science of this book. I am reasonably scientifically literate (A level Maths, Physics, Chemistry, degree in engineering from Bristol Univ) so I guess I'm within the target demographic for this book.

From my point of view the book was neither effective as popular science (bringing complex concepts to a broader audience) nor a detailed scientific treatise. So it fell between two stools.
