"For those tired of reading about a landscape of a zillion possible universes, each with its own physics and self-appointed prophets navigating around the swampland in search of other villages, Sebastien Balibar offers a refreshing romp through physics rooted in experimental reality, and even in everyday reality. As a theorist, I am enthralled."--A. Zee, author of "Fearful Symmetry" and "An Old Man's Toy"
"This is a delightful smorgasbord of reflections on physics, its history and its practice, which can be read with pleasure even by those who found the subject frightening at school. Balibar is an excellent tour guide!"--Tony Leggett, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign
"This interesting book is indeed a significant addition to the field of popular science. With an engaging tone, "The Atom and the Apple" examines not only some deep contemporary problems, but also everyday phenomena. Balibar conveys to the reader that doing research in the frontiers of physics is a wonderful great adventure."--Pierre A. Piroue, Princeton University
