Sabine s easy writing style makes the reading a pleasure She has serious issues with the direction the Particle Physics is headed and is not afraid to ruffle some feathers She approaches the major stalwarts in that area and tries to get their viewpoints across Her discussions make it obvious that the field is pushed forward and ruled by wishful thinking rather than by unbiased evidence based approach She tries to put forward some suggestions at the end for the way forward Though she does not make it clear she defines search for beauty as looking for symmetry unification and naturalness On the whole the book reads like a farewell address to a field she lovesSabine s writing and communication abilities are top notch Even someone who is not well versed in the field can enjoy reading the book I highly recommend this to any scientifically curious person

Yes she is doubtless a genius but the author makes her point in the introduction The entire rest of the book is interviews with other geniuses in confirmation Here it is particle physics has become so intractable that new experiments are near impossible Physicists at a loss for new data use their human imaginations and feelings to guide their ever improbable and untestable hypotheses

According to Sabine most of current physics is a mathematical construct not based on real observations that proposes particles that are fortuitously for those seeking research grants for big physics just beyond what is detectable in currently available experiments I have often mused that mathematics it just a bit too pretty for the mess that is our and maybe the many universes Worth the read some great explanatory analogies at times Sabine explains the simple in depth while skimping over the difficult concepts perhaps the book needed better editingIt is an important book that deserves to be read by those even mildly interested in science those actually practising the dark arts and those sifting through research proposals

    KINDLE [Lost in Math: How Beauty Leads Physics Astray] Sabine Hossenfelder ê 7 Free read For people like me, working on solid state physics, the issues addressed in this book were a recurrent subject to talk over lunch for at least the last decade. "Someone has to write such a book" we used to say, necessarily had to be someone from inside this community. I am glad that Dr. Hossenfelder did it. A theory can be beautiful, or not, but to use mathematical beauty or "naturalness" as a guide does not make any sense. Thi
