Theoretical physicist Brian Greene has a very special talent: He can explain deeply complicated scientific principles in a way that makes them comprehensible to the layperson. 

Greene’s work has given him a unique understanding of our place in creation – which, considering the whole of time, is tiny and yet as he sees it, also completely beautiful. As many of us are struggling with the restrictions placed on us by the outbreak of the coronavirus, Greene’s perspective allows us to step back and look at the much, much bigger picture, from the big bang until the end of time. 

Brian Green’s book is Until the End of Time: Mind, Matter, and Our Search for Meaning in an Evolving Universe. [IndieBound|Amazon|Audible].
