How dare she write so artfully, explain so brilliantly, rendering us scientists simultaneously proud and inarticulate!” —Leon Lederman, Nobel laureate   “Every single sentence . . . sparkles with enough intelligence and wit to delight science-phobes and science-philes alike. I loved it!” —Barbara Ehrenreich, author of Bait and Switch and Nickel and Dimed   “Natalie Angier makes planets and particles sexy . . . She turns guys with lab coats and pocket protectors into Daniel Craig.” —Sylvia Nasar, author of A Beautiful Mind   “Exuberant . . .
