Books by Lawrence M. Krauss

Released: March 21, 2017

"An admirable complement to the author's previous book and equally satisfying for those willing to read carefully."
Having recounted the mechanics of the big picture in A Universe from Nothing (2012), theoretical physicist Krauss (Director, Origins Project/Arizona State Univ.) delivers a companion volume that fills in the little—often very little—stuff. Read full book review >

"A thoughtful, challenging book—but not for the faint of heart or those not willing to read carefully."
Theologians of all religions know how the universe arose. Scientists traditionally considered this a metaphysical question outside their purview, but theoretical physicist Krauss (Director of the Origins Project/Arizona State Univ.; Quantum Man: Richard Feynman's Life in Science, 2011, etc.) asserts that laws of physics not only permit something to arise from nothing, they may guarantee it.

QUANTUM MAN by Lawrence M. Krauss
Released: March 21, 2011

"A worthy addition to the Feynman shelf and a welcome follow-up to the standard-bearer, James Gleick's Genius (1992)."
"Richard Feynman was a legend for a whole generation of scientists, long before anyone in the public knew who he was," writes Krauss (Physics/Arizona State Univ.; The Physics of Star Trek, 2007 etc.) in this engaging biography. Read full book review >

"Perhaps because Krauss shares the public's affection for the pop sources he consults, his book will entertain and instruct general readers without insulting the scientifically literate. ($75,000 ad/promo; author tour)"
Many scientists say that reading science fiction inspired them to launch their careers. Read full book review >
THE PHYSICS OF STAR TREK by Lawrence M. Krauss
Released: Nov. 22, 1995

"That theme certainly makes it all more user-friendly, but Krauss's brevity will leave readers who don't subscribe to Scientific American a little lost, and those who do without much new to chew on. (photos and illustrations) ($75,000 ad/promo)"
Physicist Krauss (Case Western Reserve Univ.) has tackled the daunting task of explaining the complexities of modern physics to the uninitiated before (Fear of Physics, 1993), with mixed results; here he uses concepts from the super-popular Star Trek television series as a kind of hook to make the lessons a little easier to swallow.

"Less a guide for the perplexed than a theoretical introduction to the weirdness and beauty of the universe."
