"An eager, ambitious book. A stimulating, accessible introduction to scientific theory."——Dallas Morning News "An enjoyably quick-paced interdisciplinary survey of the outer limits of scientific thought."——Kirkus Reviews

"Siegfried weaves a provocative and convincing argument. . . . Recommended for an informed audience."——Library Journal "An excellent introduction to the myriad small worlds that can be teased out of our big one."——Publishers Weekly

"A volume of remarkable sweep."——Booklist

Now in paperback, The Bit and the Pendulum explores the radical idea at the center of the new physics of information: everything in the universe, from the molecules in our bodies to the heart of a black hole, is made up of bits of information.Award-winning author Tom Siegfried interviews top scientists–all using "bits" to solve the seemingly unsolvable–and provides a highly accessible introduction to a fundamentally new way of seeing the world. Lively, engaging, and topical, The Bit and the Pendulum shows how the computer and the "bit" are revealing secrets of the brain, the nature of matter, and the workings of the universe.
