A Forbes Holiday Gift Guide Selection One of the most captivating science communicators of our time challenges us to reconsider the entanglement of science and society. From the cosmological to the personal, from astronomy and quantum physics to the folly of manned spaceflight and the rewards of getting things wrong, Steven Weinberg shares his views on the workings of the universe and our aspirations and limitations. Third Thoughts aims to provoke and inform and never loses sight of the human dimension of scientific discovery and its consequences for our drive to probe the workings of the cosmos.

One of the 20th century's greatest physicists, in this collection of essays, shares his strongly-held opinions on everything from the Higgs boson to the state of theoretical physics and the problems of science and society. If you're a big Steven Weinberg fan, you won't want to miss his latest.-- (12/14/2018)

This book should be read not only for its insightful and illuminating explanations of a wide range of physical phenomena but also for the opportunity it affords to follow the wanderings of a brilliant mind through topics ranging from high-energy physics and the makeup of the cosmos to poetry, and from the history and philosophy of science to the dangers of economic inequality...[A] captivating book.--Mario Livio"Science" (07/30/2018)

Steve Weinberg's essays are fascinating and thought-provoking as always. Readers will find a lot to think about on a wide range of topics.--Edward Witten, Institute for Advanced Study

Weinberg has a knack for capturing a complex concept in a succinct, unforgettable image...[He's] one of the smartest and most diligent scientists around.--Robert Crease"Nature" (08/02/2018)

This collection is an easily digestible glimpse into the mind of a thoughtful scientific communicator and shows the truly all-encompassing nature of theoretical physics.--Andrea Gawrylewski"Scientific American" (08/01/2018)

A stimulating and admirable book.--N. David Mermin"Physics Today" (01/01/2019)

Weinberg's finest collection yet--chock-full of informative content, wise opinion, and intelligent comment. He is an extreme rarity--a great physicist whose writings are entertaining and accessible for both experts and non-specialists. Superb.--Graham Farmelo, author of The Strangest Man

The phrase 'public intellectual' is much bandied about. Just a few real heavyweights in the world merit the title, and Steven Weinberg is preeminent among them. His collection ranges from deep science on the very frontier of human comprehension, through his trenchant views on public policy, to history and the arts. Compelling reading.--Richard Dawkins
