"It is beautifully presented and, given the contributor list, authoritative ... I wholeheartedly recommend it to researchers, postgraduate students and perhaps advanced undergraduates in the sciences."
Times Higher Education Supplement
"... accessible to a general readership ... presents topics that can be usefully pondered by those with little background in physics ... written at a level that can be digested by eager undergraduates but will also be instructive to experienced physicists ... several physicist colleagues have passed on unsolicited praise of the level of presentation."
"The message of The New Physics for the Twenty-first Century is that the most fundamental problems remain elusive, but the magnificent tools that have been developed during the past decade have opened up new vistas on subjects once thought to be familiar."
"A cursory glance shows that the people writing the articles are leaders in their fields. Who better to learn from? Third, not only are the authors big, but they're good - the writing is incredibly concise, yet lucid, and any of the chapters are accessible to most 2nd or 3rd year physics undergraduates, or anyone else who's been exposed to a decent amount of physics. All in all, I highly recommend this book."
"... this book will be an excellent addition to any physicist's library. The net effect of reading it could be likened to having a year-long series of engaging speakers at the weekly departmental colloquium-one after another brilliantly elucidating the advances in their field, but making their talks comprehensible for everyone who attended even if they came only for the cookies and punch!"
