Review

This festive season put White Holes in your friends’ stockings ... a miniature masterpiece by one of the most entertaining scientists on the planet… I would give this book to anyone, young and old, interested in thinking, science and literature… His book is a work of literature itself -- Robert Fox - Evening Standard

Everyone’s talking about White Holes - Daily Mail

Reading it is akin to the final psychedelic sequence in the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey: you’re not sure where you’re heading but it feels bloody exciting ... If you want to remember why you once fell in love with the idea of the cosmos, or want to fall in love with that idea for the first time, then this book is for you -- Kevin Fong - Observer

It is always worth reading Rovelli. He writes like he believes you are as learned and clever as he is. Yet he also writes with such care for your ignorance that it feels every page is urging and coaxing you - a non-physicist - to see what he can see -- Tom Whipple - The Times

Possibly the most charming book by a mainstream scientist this year... Carlo Rovelli is a maestro of imaginative science writing... The book's structure and language have a charm that I found irresistible. No one else matches the way Rovelli describes the creative and imaginative thinking behind theoretical physics -- Clive Cookson - Financial Times

Carlo Rovelli's brilliant new book White Holes asks surprising questions … A beautiful little book, by a celebrated physicist and writer, about a phenomenon that is permitted by equations but might not actually exist … What elevates this book is the author’s supernatural concision, and his artistic and philosophical elegance -- Steven Poole - Daily Telegraph

This slim, speculative volume will enchant the many fans of the stellar cosmologist. In a work of poetry and imagination as much as physics, he seeks to convince us that black holes (from which nothing can escape) will eventually convert into white holes (which nothing can enter) - Financial Times, Best Books of the Year

In White Holes, Rovelli, in lyrical prose and quoting extensively from Dante’s Inferno, takes us inside a black hole, a tunnel that narrows as it lengthens. At the bottom is the star that created it ... a hallucinatory journey -- Pippa Bailey - New Statesman

Carlo Rovelli is brilliant at making even dopey arts graduates understand physics before comprehension disappears into the black hole of ignorance. Now he turns to white holes. Apparently, where time and space end, the white hole is born (I think) - The Times

In Carlo Rovelli’s White Holes, the quantum physicist posits the mind-numbing notion that when they get very, very old, black holes – which result when stars collapse on themselves by force of gravity – turn into, well, white holes. Rovelli writes with equal gaiety and clarity. A splendid book - New Statesman, Best Books of the Year

We all know about black holes – we've even seen a picture of one. But white holes? In his latest book, theoretical physicist Carlo Rovelli weaves a poetic spell to persuade us that these mysterious entities are real... an enjoyable and enlightening read... one of the clearest pictures I have encountered about the physics inside black holes... You probably won’t ever fall into a black hole (or exit a white hole), but reading this might be the next best thing -- Abigail Beall - New Scientist

Taking the journey with Rovelli is more than worth the price of the book. Dante gave us his tour of the underworld. We could not do better than having Rovelli as a guide into the dark world of black holes - NPR
