       science really works -- What we can do for science. 
520    In this illuminating book, the renowned theoretical 
       physicist Lee Smolin argues that fundamental physics -- 
       the search for the laws of nature -- losing its way. 
       Ambitious ideas about extra dimensions, exotic particles, 
       multiple universes, and strings have captured the public's
       imagination -- and the imagination of experts. But these 
       ideas have not been tested experimentally, and some, like 
       string theory, seem to offer no possibility of being 
       tested. Yet these speculations dominate the field, 
       attracting the best talent and much of the funding and 
       creating a climate in which emerging physicists are often 
       penalized for pursuing other avenues. As Smolin points out,
       the situation threatens to impede the very progress of 
       science. With clarity, passion, and authority, Smolin 
       offers an unblinking assessment of the troubles that face 
       modern physics -- and an encouraging view of where the 
       search for the next big idea may lead.
