Description
In his groundbreaking book The Road to Reality, Roger Penrose provided a comprehensive yet readable guide to our present understanding of the laws that are currently believed to govern our universe. A recipient of the 1988 Wolf Prize, which he shared with Stephen Hawking for their joint contribution to the understanding of the universe, Penrose here moves far beyond that threshold to develop a completely new perspective on cosmology, providing a quite unexpected answer to the question of what came before the Big Bang.

"Science needs more people like Penrose, willing and able to point out the flaws in fashionable models from a position of authority, and to signpost alternative roads to follow."Independent (London)
