Acclaimed physicist Roger Penrose argues the possibility that outside forces such as the latest trends, blind beliefs and flights of fancy, indeed have an effect on even the most dedicated of scientists. In other words, he argues that fashion, faith, and fantasy, while sometimes productive and even essential in physics, may be leading today's researchers astray in three of the field's most important areas - string theory, quantum mechanics, and cosmology.

What happens when a scientist's judgement of a theory is clouded by its fashionable nature? Are most of the fantastical ideas about the origins of the universe untrue? Find out in this riveting critique of some of the most significant advancements in physics today.
