The bestselling author of The Elegant Universe and The Fabric of the Cosmos tackles perhaps the most mind-bending question in modern physics and cosmology: Is our universe the only universe?There was a time when "universe" meant all there is. Everything. Yet, a number of theories are converging on the possibility that our universe may be but one among many parallel universes populating a vast multiverse. Here, Briane Greene, one of our foremost physicists and science writers, takes us on a breathtaking journey to a multiverse comprising an endless series of big bangs, a multiverse with duplicates of every one of us, a multiverse populated by vast sheets of spacetime, a multiverse in which all we consider real are holographic illusions, and even a multiverse made purely of math--and reveals the reality hidden within each.Using his trademark wit and precision, Greene presents a thrilling survey of cutting-edge physics and confronts the inevitable question: How can fundamental science progress if great swaths of reality lie beyond our reach? The Hidden Reality is a remarkable adventure through a world more vast and strange than anything we could have imagined.

3.0 The Hidden Reality: Parallel Universes and the Deep Laws of the Cosmos
As a non-physicist, I am a fan of Greene, who is known for explaining string theory to the masses, but this book was a bit heavy for audio. I dropped off a couple times and had to re-listen to a few sections. Diagrams would be useful. I might have given it 4 stars if I read it in paper. Still, a tho...

3.0
Unabridged and read by the author - sorted!Not as accessible (for me, anyway :O/) as The Elegant Universe however I love his descriptions of parallel universes that fire the imagination.
