About the Author
Pharis Williams is a retired naval officer and a retired academician. He spent over thirty years in physics experimental and theoretical research at the US Naval Academy, the Los Alamos National Laboratory and at New Mexico Tech. Much of his experimental research was in weapons, shock physics and explosives while his theoretical research covered the entire range of physics from sub-nuclear through cosmology with emphasis on unifying the various branches of physics by showing they all stem from the same set of fundamental laws.

For many years now, the ultimate quest in physics has been the unification of Einstein's general relativity with quantum mechanics. Mr. Williams discovered that both these theories can, in fact, be derived from the laws of thermodynamics. The resulting theory eliminates the singularity problems of the conventional theories and makes a variety of intriguing predictions.
Mr. Williams' book, "Physics Against the Odds" presents both the history of his discovery and the implications of his theory simply enough to be readily accessible to the average undergraduate in any technical field. Though the writing style is not particularly eloquent, and the astute reader will notice occasional errors in grammar and punctuation, the informational content of the work is invaluable. This book is an absolute must-read for anyone with any interest whatsoever in physics or cosmology.
