There is an alternate cover edition for this ASIN here.From the best-selling author of The Elegant Universe and The Fabric of the Cosmos comes his most expansive and accessible book to datea book that takes on the grandest question: Is ours the only universe?There was a time when universe meant all there is. Everything. Yet, in recent years discoveries in physics and cosmology have led a number of scientists to conclude that our universe may be one among many. With crystal-clear prose and inspired use of analogy, Brian Greene shows how a range of different multiverse proposals emerges from theories developed to explain the most refined observations of both subatomic particles and the dark depths of space: a multiverse in which you have an infinite number of doppelgngers, each reading this sentence in a distant universe; a multiverse comprising a vast ocean of bubble universes, of which ours is but one; a multiverse that endlessly cycles through time, or one that might be hovering milli...

هل كوننا هو الكون الوحيد الذي له وجود؟
"استكشاف المجهول يتطلب التسامح مع عدم اليقين"—برايان جرين.
شخصياً من المؤمنين بوحود عوالم أو أكوان أخرى موازية لهذا العالم، وكذلك من المؤمنين بوجود حياة أو حيوات خارج هذه المجرة، ف الله الذي خلق أدق الكائنات المجهرية وصولاً للكائنات الأكثر تعقيداً " نحن البشر" لا شك أنه أبدع في تصميم وتخليق هذا الكون، بصورة لم يصل لها خيالنا الحسي أو المادي حتى الآن!

I wanted to get a glimpse of the current state of physics' understanding and theories about our universe and possible multiverses, mostly after an interesting piece on Radiolab a few months ago. I felt like this book got bogged down in string theory, and I have to admit the mechanics of the holographic universe escaped me. Still, I feel like I understand more about how theories of multiverses originate, and where they might be going. Not the most fun read, and I was expecting less theoretical ph ...more
I really am a huge fan of Brian Greene. I've read both "The Elegant Universe" and "The Fabric of the Cosmos" and find his writing simply astonishing. With complete sympathy for readers without mathematical acumen, he explains concepts like quantum physics, the theory of relativity, the four major forces including gravity with such precision, and wit, that I found myself gasping for breath as I felt like I was reaching groundbreaking depths of understanding of how the universe works on almost eve ...more
This is a pretty dense book. Some of the footnotes have footnotes!
I'm sure it must be very difficult for an author of a popular science book to walk the line between, on the one hand, providing enough technical information to make the arguments cogent, and on the other, miring the reader in a bog of difficult concepts and facts. My hat's off to Dr. Greene for giving it a try on some of the most out-there ideas that can be imagined.
Some very interesting ideas, but ultimately, for me this was al ...more

Suggestions for Further Reading
Brian = bae. Definitely one of the more accessible cosmology writers of today. Any book discussing quantum field theory and string theory is going to require your undivided attention, of course, but it’s much more readable than many others, especially if you’re fond of analogies.
Turns out, there’s lots of theories that give rise to the possibility of alternate realities:
Theory 1, aka Quilted Multiverse: If the universe is infinite (it might not be, but if it is) then at some point in the distan ...more
I've now read three books about the multiverse in rapid succession: the first two were Rees's Before The Beginning (1996) and Davies's The Goldilocks Enigma (2007). This one came out just a few months ago, so I'm hopefully up to date for the moment.
Well: I'm starting to feel quite familiar with the arguments, but each book has an interestingly different slant. Rees concentrates on presenting the experimental evidence for the existence of other universes - basically, the physical constants of ...more
