Description: Physicist Robert Gilmore, author of the best-selling book Alice in Quantumland, here presents a delightful takeoff on Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol, in which the three visitations represent Science Past (the Spirits of Energy and Entropy), Science Present (the Spirit of Time), and Science Future (the surreal world of quantum uncertainty). For anyone who wants a playful, painless, yet surprisingly sophisticated introduction to the ideas of modern physics, this is a brilliant tour de force and a charming read.
